Ecole North Oyster: Donations needed to feed hungry children

Ecole North Oyster: Donations needed to feed hungry children

It’s easily the worst moment of the day when a hungry child comes to her for food and there is nothing to give.

It’s horrible,” says Christine De Vries, the secretary of Ecole North Oyster Elementary, a rural French-English school near Ladysmith.

Yesterday I told a child she was getting the last apple. I had nothing for the other kids who were hungry. I just don’t ever want to be in this state.

So De Vries has applied to The Vancouver Sun’s Adopt-A-School campaign for help.
