Each week there is a theme by which families can donate non-perishable food items:
- Week 1 - Food in Tins
- Week 2 - Festive Food
- Week 3 - Staple Foods
- Week 4 - Sweets and Treats
During the Countdown our volunteers, along with Lily-the-Camel, visit each classroom to count and collect the items that have been donated.
The items are collected by the Salvation Army on behalf of the Peel Christmas Hamper Appeal, which distribute over 2,500 hampers to people in need over the Christmas season.
We are so proud of the generosity of our families and the enthusiasm of our students and teachers who make this event a success!
