During this Christmas preparation period, the Parents’ Association is very enthusiastic to be working with Act2Aid (the charity group in the school) to support the volunteer action group Voedselbank, or Food Bank, in Alkmaar.
From 5th until 15th December, Act2Aid is collecting food items which will go to people in need in the local area and it will help to bring some basic items to families who are less fortunate than we are.
Main collection times are : 8:45 to 9:00 and 16:15 to 16:45. There are two collection points:
•Primary : A stand outside the gate.
•Secondary : A stand in the main entrance hall.
All kinds of food are very welcome, however, the following are the most suitable for the Food Bank (Please, bring the items in a carrier bag)
– Vegetables in pots or tins
– Pasta sauces, curry sauces, ragout sauce
– Vegetable oil
– Jam, peanut butter etc
– Soup in tins or jars
– Tea and coffee, diluting juice
– Tinned fish or sausages
In keeping with the Christmas spirit, chocolate letters, pepernoten and other treats are welcome. (Please make sure there is a reasonable sell-by date on the goods)
