Abbotsford School Lunch Program benefits from recycling in the Shopping Centre

Since the fall of 2010 Delivery Home Shopping Centre has partnered with the Abbotsford School District to support their School Meal Program, helping to provide daily lunches to vulnerable children.

Delivery Home donates all monies collected from the return of recyclable beverage containers to the Program and is thrilled to announce that, to-date, we have raised $17,123.14 to help feed hungry students with a nutritious lunch. Studies show students who are well fed have better memory, less irritability, improved attention span and achieve higher test scores.

Presently, there are over 438 daily lunches prepared and delivered to various District schools in Abbotsford. The need is always growing and the Management and Retailers at Delivery Home Shopping Centre work together to ensure that all recyclable beverage containers are placed in our recyclable bins. They are generously picked up by Regional Recycling, at no charge, to help us retain the maximum amount to assist each and every student in need.

For more information on how you can be a partner and donate, please contact Leigh Howard, Director, Learning Support Services at the Abbotsford School District at 604-504-4610.
