Selkirk Secondary has supported the Kimberley Helping Hands Food Bank for over twenty seven years and we are once again asking our students to assist the community in a very positive way by selling at least one book of ($20 of tickets) on behalf of the Food Bank. Each ticket costs $2.00. If each student sold one book we would raise just over $8,000. In 2014, the Food Bank donated Christmas Hampers costing almost $29,500, ($22,000 in food and $7,500 in toys) to families in our community with Selkirk raising over $6,500. Hampers last year helped 267 adults and 146 children; the entire cost was covered by fundraising through the community including Selkirk. We hope to match or surpass this amount this year.
In each community in Kimberley there has been a home or business chosen as a “mystery“ location. If a student goes to one of these locations to sell a ticket, they will be given a coupon for a $20 cash prize that they can claim at school. The coupons will be given out from the school to each location should anyone try and sell a ticket at that home/business. We have prizes for the top three ticket sellers, the sellers of the winning tickets and the top three selling classes. The grand prizes are $1,000, $500 and $250.
