Great Milne’s Landing Food Fight – Journey students and staff donated 1217 times in food and cash to the Sooke Food Bank in time for Christmas. Ms. Lennox’s class collect the most and Ms. Dvorak’s class was a very close second! Volunteers from the Sooke Food Bank, Marie and Glen Wilson, came by on Friday to pick up the donation and wanted to pass on their appreciation from everyone who volunteers for the program.
