Dear NRP Families,
It has come to our attention that there is an urgent need to provide support to Local Food Banks. We are asking you to join us in helping the families of our immediate community that have been seriously affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Many of these families living in residence are international students at UBC. They have limited funds and are currently isolated from their families. They used to earn living expenses by taking jobs on campus, but due to the COVID-19 crisis most of the campus facilities are not operating. As a result, some families do not have the funds to purchase food and basic supplies.
Let’s come together to show our support and help our neighbours. You’ll find below a list of baby supplies and other items that can be donated. We have learned that baby supplies are more in need than food. The PAC will be collecting donations next week and delivering them directly to Local Food Banks.
Donations can be dropped off in the boxes in front of the school door outside the office from Monday, January 25 to Friday, January 29.
Supplies for Children under 3:
- Baby Food
- Low Sodium Canned Meats: Salmon, Chicken, Fish- Dried Lentils
- Dried Rice and Pasta
- Canned Beans: black beans, kidney beans, chickpeas
- Canned Fruits and Vegetables- Canned Stews with 10g of protein or more
Let’s fill up these boxes and show our support!
