Food Drive for Food Bank of WNY

Published November 9, 2015

Dear UBCCC North Parents,

You may have seen the posters hanging around the center announcing a Food and Diaper collection for the Food Bank of WNY. The teachers have asked me to share the details with you in this message. If you have any questions, they can be directed towards any of the (UBCCC North) Toddler Lead Teachers - Ashley, Vickie or Stacey.

We are hoping that you include your children in the process of bringing in your donations and leaving them in the boxes as we are talking with them about carting for one another and being mindful of the needs of others. Thank you for your anticipated response:

During this Holiday Season, UBCCC North is giving back to our Community. Over the next 2 months we are providing various opportunities to donate to Local Charities.

November 9th through November 23rd

UBCCC will be hosting a Canned & Non-perishable Food and Diaper drive. Boxes will be located in the Front Foyer for your donations.
