Timberline Interact Club students

Students trick-or-treat for food bank

Timberline Interact Club students will be out in full costume this Halloween trick-or-treating for the food bank

Timberline Interact Club students will be out in full costume this Halloween trick-or-treating. But they’re not looking for candy. Instead they will be collecting donations for the food bank.

On Wednesday, Oct. 31 the students will kick off their efforts going door-to-door to local downtown businesses collecting monetary and food donations. Volunteer Janny Bird will bring her two dogs, Missi, dressed as Superman and IceA, as Batman, along for a special treat. Then at night, the students will trick-or-treat for donations at residential homes.

Teacher Barb Izard said residents can expect the students to have identification and they hope to receive lots of support from the community.


Wood Cut

Interact, affiliated with the Campbell River Daybreak Rotary Club and known for its community service, is also planning a wood cut on Nov. 3. The Interact Club has a goal of raising $8,000 this school year, with funds going towards the food bank and the Salvation Army. Last year the group gave $2,000 to Pediatrics Children’s Hospital and $2,000 to Cameryn’s Cause, which helps local families when their children need out of town medical treatment.

To help the students reach their goal you can purchase wood by contacting Barb Izard at Barb.Izard@sd72.bc.ca or by calling Timberline at 250-923-9500. Wood costs $125 per truckload and will be delivered on Saturday, Nov. 3. The seasoned fir has been donated to the school by Barry and Kerry Watchorn.
