Food Drive by OLOL School

” Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic elementary school in Delaware held a Thanksgiving Food Drive to share their bounty with the less fortunate.

The classes competed against each other to collect the most food items. The total amount exceeded 1500 canned goods!

On Friday , October 11 , the delivery truck was  packed with barely enough room for the driver!

The food was delivered to the Women’s Rural Resource Centre in Strathroy . Tears of joy came from the staff as the shelters’ shelves were empty heading into the holiday weekend!

Many thanks and blessings to the generous school community!”
