Fort St. James Secondary School students were on a mission.

With Christmas just around the corner, the high school students decided to challenge themselves by seeing which class could contribute the most for the local Toy and Food Drive in Fort St. James.

High School Teacher, Travis James and his Grade 8 class won the challenge with over 800 items.

Over 140 boxes were delivered at Christmas locally last year and Toy and Food Drive organizer, Jasmine Lakusta sees this as being the goal this year as well.

“It’s amazing how much the community comes together for this,” Lakusta said.

Fort St. James Secondary students were also involved in the annual “Fill up the Bus” event on Dec. 7-8.

The students collected toys and non-perishable food items throughout town to help support the Toy and Food Drive.

If you would like to volunteer for the Toy and Food Drive, contact Tabitha Balfour at: (250) 863-2057.
