Students from the Community Access Program reached their goal of raising $1,000 over the holiday season.

The students collect food donations for the Abbotsford Food Bank, while collecting bottles for their bottle business throughout the year.

At Christmas, the group makes a large cash donation to the food bank, Youth Unlimited/Youth for Christ and the Cyrus Centre.

The Community Access Program is based at Yale Secondary and is for students who are moderately and mildly intellectually disabled.
