Rosseau Lake comes through for Manna Food Bank

posted Jan 3, 2011, 1:37 PM by School Office

Every year, in the weeks leading up to the holiday season, Rosseau Lake College (RLC) Student Council holds a food drive for the Manna Food Bank in Bracebridge.  Students generally assemble a respectable number of items to donate, at least two items for each of the approximately 100 students at the school.  However, this year, a new style of competition arose between students that has lead to an explosion in the number of items donated.  RLC students are separated into various houses, Perry, Eaton, Ditchburn, and Kawandag, named after families and groups who have significant historical importance in the local area. Normally, the food drive is run as a competition to see who can bring in the most items, hence the winning house is the one that collects the most.  However, this year, thanks to a very creative idea from one student council member, houses are competing to fill each other's food boxes making the winning house the one with the least items!  This has inspired some incredible generosity (and creative collaboration), as houses work together to swamp an opposing team's box with donations.
  • Regardless of which house comes out on top, the food bank is this year's clear winner with RLC students having more than tripled their annual donations!
