Summit Pacific College holds food drive

Abbotsford school collects donations to help during crisis situation

Students from Summit Pacific College recently held a food drive for the Abbotsford Food Bank.

Summit Pacific College (SPC) in Abbotsford collected 14 boxes of needed items for the Abbotsford Food Bank after holding a food drive in October.

The small school of about 150 students decided to help out after reading a news article stating that the food bank was in a crisis situation.

A few years ago, SPC launched a campaign called #SPCLovesAbby, where they look for practical and intentional ways of serving the community.

Students felt that the food bank fit in perfectly with that campaign.

“We believe in the work they do. They are meeting crucial needs in our community, and we wanted to come alongside them in doing that,” said Josh Reynolds, the school’s co-ordinator of community relations and global development.
