Creative Students Community Initiative

This charitable initiative is intended to engage Delta students with supporting those in need in their community while also thinking about all the people across many different industries who are working to keep everything working during uncertain times.

We ask students to think about people they are thankful for and use their creativity to show or tell us about them.

For doing so, we will make a donation to the Delta School District Food Security Program to help people in need in Delta.

About the Food Security Program

Although schools are closed for in-class instruction, Delta School District is helping to ensure students continue to have access to food by providing 125 families with food hampers each week. This is the fourth week that the district has provided food for local families. To date, 370 hampers have been distributed in North Delta and 125 hampers distributed in Ladner and Tsawwassen.
