There are 123 students at St. Joseph Catholic Elementary School in Stevensville, but that didn’t stop them from winning a contest hosted by Niagara Nutrition Partners and the Niagara River Lions basketball team, to collect food items for the agency’s cereal and cracker drive in March.
The school collected a very impressive 304 boxes of cereal and crackers, which earned them a $100 gift card from Sobey’s, breakfast for the school and a 90-minute visit by the Niagara River Lions.
Following a breakfast of scrambled egg and cheese wraps, fresh fruit and milk, students had a chance to interact with six players, including shooting hoops in the gym.
Congratulations, too, to the students and staff at St. Ann Catholic Elementary School in Fenwick. The 144 students collected 156 boxes for Niagara Nutrition Partners.
