Star of the Sea Elementary students made goodie bags with messages for the homeless in Vancouver.

South Surrey students supply sweet treats

Goodie bags with special messages given to Vancouver's homeless

It was a sweet start to the Christmas season for students at Star of the Sea Elementary.

More than 2,400 individual bags of sweet treats, containing messages of love and hope were created by the students earlier this month then dropped off to Agape Street Ministry.

The ministries street team then donated the goodie bags – which each contained a message of love and hope – to people living in the Downtown Eastside.

Crucial necessities were also collected school-wide in support of the Front Room – Surrey’s 24-hour drop centre that feeds 220 people each day, as well as provide laundry services and showering facilities.

Star of the Sea students capped off their charity work with a toy drive benefitting the Surrey Christmas Bureau.
