Hello Deep Cove community!


Our Diversity Club has been talking about ways to help others in our community and around the world. This month, we are choosing to support refugees coming to the peninsula.

The Victoria Immigrant and Refugee Center Society has expressed a need for new arrival care packages. We will be collecting donations of the following items to form care packages
  • Toothbrushes and toothpaste
  • Shampoo and conditioner
  • Soaps and body wash
  • Deodorant
  • Tampons and sanitary items 
  • Wash cloths
  • Hair brushes or combs
Most of these things can be found at the dollar store or on sale for a good price, but they go a long way in making a refugee family feel welcome in Canada.

Please have your child bring any donations to school before May 23rd

Thank you for supporting this cause!
