Anderdon Public School set the precedent and went above the call of duty as it relates to this year’s can drive.

The Mustangs donate annually to the Amherstburg Food and Fellowship Mission. The average donation consists of 1,500 to 2,000 cans respectively. This year, with the knowledge that in Canada one in seven children live in the state of constant hunger due to poverty, the Mustangs rallied.

The Anderdon Mustangs brought in 3,443 cans to donate to the Amherstburg Food and Fellowship Mission with all cans designated to assist children and adults alike that are in need within our community.

Grade 7 teacher and can drive organizer Randi Lamarche said she is “extremely proud of all Anderdon participants that clearly set an astounding record in the school that would be difficult to match.”

The students at Anderdon have a friendly competition between classes for the coveted “Can Drive trophy.” The trophy has found a resting spot for the past three years in Lamarche’s class.

Many classes brought in well over 200 cans, Lamarche noted.

“The empathy and dedication the students of Anderdon brought forth to help our community is truly admirable,” added Lamarche.
