Thanks to cash donations from Parkland College staff, and generous contributions from several businesses in Yorkton, more than 60 students from throughout the region are receiving a food hamper just in time for Thanksgiving.
Over the past week, students were able to be nominated to receive a hamper filled with food items such as canned vegetables, soup, pasta, mashed potatoes, stuffing, and pumpkin pie. Sixty-five students from Yorkton, Melville, Kamsack, and Fort Qu’Appelle received a hamper for the holiday.
Legacy Co-op in Yorkton provided reusable bags and a $500 gift card to spend on food. Save-On-Foods, Superstore, Giant Tiger, and Canadian Tire also donated gift cards and supplies to help with this giveaway.
“Parkland College is grateful for the support,” said President & CEO Mark Hoddenbagh. “It’s a terrific example of the community coming together, especially in these challenging times.”
