The Board of Trustees for Clearview Public Schools uses this opportunity during the holiday season to provide a donation to the local food banks on behalf of Clearview staff, in lieu of staff receiving a gift.
In past years, Clearview staff have shown appreciation for the Board providing this help to families in need during this time of year.
A donation of $1,000 from Clearview is divided between three local food banks and with CUPE contributing an additional $300 to be split between the Stettler Food Bank and the Stettler Christmas Hamper.
Betty Birch from the Stettler Food Bank shared, “We have a great community, and we see that all of the time by all of the donations that we receive that allows us to keep our Food Bank stocked up so that no families have to go hungry.
“Food Bank usage in Stettler and other areas continues to increase.
“The holidays can be a stressful enough time without worrying if you can keep your family fed, and donations such as the ones made by Clearview and their staff go a long way to helping ease that stress for families in need,” Birch concluded.
