This upcoming Saturday October 31st 2015, Sir Thomas More school will be hosting its 16th annual Halloween 4 Hunger Campaign in the school cafeteria. St. Thomas More Catholic Secondary School hosts an annual campaign every Halloween in which hundreds of volunteers collect canned goods from the local community to donate to the Neighbour 2 Neighbour Center. Neighbour 2 Neighbour Center aids and supports over 6000 residents in Hamilton, almost half of those being children. The goal to alleviate and prevent poverty in our community is a common vision shared between the volunteers at the Neighbour 2 Neighbour Center, ourselves, the student volunteers at St. Thomas More, and the community. Halloween 4 Hunger is the 2nd largest one-day food drive in Canada This year the students will be canvassing to over 23, 000 homes on the West and Central Hamilton Mountain. If they surpass this year’s goal of 80, 000 pounds, they will have collected over 600, 000 pounds since our first campaign 16 years ago! Pictured, last year’s collection.
