The bus was off as students from Fort St. James Secondary School helped to fill it up for the annual Toy and Food Drive.

On Dec. 7-8, unwrapped toys and non-perishable food items were collected all across Fort St. James.

The annual event, now in its fourth year, is organized by the student council along with Christine Deverson and Jhenipher Bridgeman.

Bridgeman, at risk youth worker at Fort St. James Secondary School, says that it was an idea that student council originally came up with four years ago and now the community just seems to expect it.

“It was their idea. They wanted to find a way to get donations especially from those who find it difficult to get around and who would like to donate but can’t.”

“It’s rewarding for them and gets them into the joy and spirit of giving,” Bridgman said.
