Fundraisers & Donations

Veteran's Food Drive  
Canadian soldiers have been defending our borders and assisting in Peace Keeping missions around the world for over 100 years now. Many have made the ultimate sacrifice and, sadly, many of those who return home fall on hard times. There are over 2,500 Canadian Armed Forces veterans currently living on the streets of Canada.

Homelessness is a major issue facing our Canadian veterans. Veterans continue to sacrifice for Canadians even after their service. Many veterans won’t go to a food bank because they feel like they’re taking food away from someone else who deserves it. That’s the unique need for the Veterans’ Food Bank and one we would like to support. Mt. Royal School has a long and distinguished list of former students who have served in the Canadian Armed Forces, and we would like to help their fellow soldiers.

 Please donate non-perishable food and everyday items such as canned goods, pasta, toothpaste, deodorant etc. We are accepting donations from Monday November 5th till Friday November 9th.  Donations will be collected in the front foyer and can be placed inside the white picket fence.

Thank you in advance for contributing to this important cause.
