The 12 Days of Christmas Giving Food Drive at Holy Cross! Starting on Monday November 26th we are kicking off our 12 Days of Christmas Giving food drive for Christmas Cheer. Each day will have a different food item we are requesting for donations. To make it interesting we have put a twist on it. We will be having a "friendly competition" with Alcona Glen to see which school can raise the most donations of food. As a prize, the winning school will be awarded The Golden Can Trophy and the principal of the runner up school will have to wear the other school's jersey on the last day before the break. As an added bonus, Innisfil Firefighters Association has donated 4 tickets for the Barrie Colts on December 15th at 7:30pm. The student/family who brings in the most donated items will win the tickets!
