December Food Drive

During the month of December, all members of the Richmond Secondary School community are encouraged to donate, if they are able, a quality, non-perishable food item in their 2-3 class. The demand on food banks is growing and the Richmond Food Bank assists over 1300 people and provides over 30,000lbs of food every week. RHS students are encouraged to learn more about poverty and the working poor and find out how they can help, during the holidays and throughout the year.  Thank you for caring and getting involved to help others. For more information, check out:
