Collecting Cardboard Egg Cartons

Over the next couple of months the middle school students will be working with the BC Mission Boat Society to put together Easter Kits that will be sent to families in remote First Nations communities. One of the items in the kits will be Resurrection Eggs. For this project, we are in need of 300 cardboard egg cartons (12 capacity, with lid; NO plastic or styrofoam). Please start saving your egg cartons and send them with your child. They can be dropped off in the foyer just outside the office at either campus, in the labelled box. Watch for more information about this exciting missions project
