We issued a challenge to all of our participating Lend-a-Hand schools, and we are pleased that four area-schools accepted it!  A heartfelt thank you to:

  • St. Julia Billiart CES
  • St Mark CES
  • Cornell Village PS
  • Raymerwood PS

The generosity of the students and staff at these schools is an inspiration to us all.  Faircrow, our Fair Ambassador, was pleased to ensure that all of the food collected was delivered to the Markham Food Bank.

During our Lend-a-Hand campaign, elementary school students were encouraged to make our communities even better places to live.   Many classes organized specific events to “lend a hand”, and in other cases individual students took their own initiative.  We are pleased to continue to encourage all students to get involved in their communities, and to make a meaningful contribution as we build our community together.

Markham Fair has been run by thousands of volunteers for more than 172 years.  Today the fairgrounds is host to countless community events, and the Fair is among the largest agricultural fair in Canada.

Congratulations to those schools that participated in this year’s “Lend-a-Hand” Food Drive.  Thank you!
