Guelph Community Christian School arrived at Speroway in a big way!  Over 40 grade 1 & 2 students along with teachers and parents arrived at the Guelph Head Office to help pack food and hygiene boxes.

When I arrived in the warehouse, students in one line had just completed packing 40 hygiene boxes.  The boxes filled with supplies like soap and other toiletries are given to out to needy families at special Family Food Box distributions.

The hygiene boxes go with the Family Food boxes.  In the other line they were just finishing up their 40th box.  Each box contains over 35 pounds of good quality food.  This helps feed a family of four, for about one week.

GCCS has been here before at Speroway helping to pack up thousands of Crocs shoes.  While the shoes went to places like Central America and Africa, the Family Food Boxes will be distributed here in Canada.  These boxes may be distributed locally to families here in Guelph or may make there way to Hamilton.

Update: The students packed over 100 each of hygiene and food boxes
