Food Drive success & Holiday Bakers please!

The DL PAC is pleased to report that our recent food drive was a success! The bins were collected from each class last week and the participation level was excellent. In fact, over 900 items of non-perishable items were received from our students! It was clear that our Dorothy Lynas families took great care in choosing items that were allergy-friendly, and there were many gluten free and organic items as well.

All of the food items collected were donated to the Harvest Project, an urban relief organization here on the North Shore. Through their various programs, Harvest Project helps individuals and families overcome difficult life circumstances so that each one can participate more fully within the North Shore community. The staff at the Harvest Project were extremely grateful for our donation, particularly for those clients with dietary concerns or food allergies.

The DL PAC would like to thank our families for their generous donations to the Harvest Project and for enthusiastically participating in this initiative to raise awareness about food allergies and safety. A huge thanks to DL parent Tracy Loree for spearheading this event and for personally delivering our donations to those in need this holiday season.
