Support the Food Bank Alkmaar

Dear ESB Community,

At this festive time of year School and the PA normally organise a collection for the Alkmaar food bank.

Voedselbank Alkmaar & Heerhugowaard e.o.

Unfortunately, as last year, it is again impractical to arrange a physical collection of foodstuffs. It has been another difficult year for many families and the food banks remain invaluable to many. The PA considered that it would again be appropriate for us to offer seasonal support of the local community in the form of a monetary collection for the food bank in lieu of physical items. Last year we collected an amazing €1900, it would be great if we could beat that this year.

Click on the “DONATE” button to easily make a donation now.

Funds raised as of 17/12/2021

Euros

The donation value is set to €10.00 but this can be amended to whatever value you wish to give. All donations will be transferred to the Alkmaar Food Bank on Friday 17 th December. We will of course notify you of the total achieved.

Many thanks to you all in advance of your generous donations.

Wishing you all a Merry Christmas , “Fijne Feestdagen” and a happy and healthy 2022

Dear ESB Community,

At this festive time of year School and the PA normally organise a collection for the Alkmaar food bank.

https://www.voedselbankalkmaar.nl/

At this time it is impractical to arrange a physical collection of foodstuffs. However, this year has been a very difficult year for even more families than usual and the food banks are invaluable to many.

The PA considered that it would be good to continue our seasonal support of the local community and we are therefore arranging a monetary collection for the food bank in lieu of physical items.

To make this very simple there is a “Betaalverzoek” link attached via which you can very easily make a donation.

Funds raised as of 18/12/2020

Euros

The donation value in the link is set to €5.00 but this can be amended to whatever value you wish to give.

All donations will be transferred to the Alkmaar Food Bank on Friday 18th December. We will of course notify you of the total achieved.

 

Many thanks to you all in advance of your generous donations.

 

Wishing you all a Merry Christmas and happy and healthy 2021

The student volunteer organization, Act2Aid, is holding it’s 4th annual food drive to benefit Voedselbank (Food bank) Alkmaar. Please consider donating food and bringing it to school Monday, December 9 – Tuesday, December 17. Voedselbank (Food bank) Alkmaar supports local families in need.

Donation Collection
Locations & Dates

Secondary students can leave donated items at the Act2Aid table in the main entrance to the school between December 9 – 17. Volunteers will also be collecting donations in the primary playground during drop off and pick up on these days.

Items Needed

All types of food are appreciated, but the following is the most suitable for the Food Bank:

Donate Your Time
Volunteers are needed to Collect Donations for Primary.

Primary students can leave their donations in two places. Firstly, they can leave them under the tree outside Nadia Roofthoft’s office. Alternatively, we will collect donations outside the primary gate during drop off and pick up. This is especially helpful for small children whose parents aren’t able to come into the school in the morning (P1-5).

However, we do need volunteers to collect these donations and bring them inside to one of the two aforementioned designated drop off points. Please consider volunteering your time to help collect donations during one of these times.

Waste Separation & Recycling Program

Waste Separation & Recycling Program

The Parents’ Association Fresh Ideas Team (FIT) worked with the school administration to begin implementation of a waste separation and recycling program. We have partnered with the school providing funds, coordination and volunteers to help implement the plan throughout the school.
You may have seen the large, triple bins for paper, plastic and cans were purchased for the hallways. The PA has designed and installed posters illustrating which items go in which bins, further educating the children how to sort their waste. Inside the classroom, we have also provided extra bins for recycling paper to encourage paper recycling in the classrooms.
Environmental protection is something we value highly. If you have a fresh idea that would further promote raise topics like of waste separation, waste avoidance and environment protection please contact us with your idea.
