Students in Delta Secondary's Interact Club have been active this year supporting a wide range of causes.

The mandate of the club, which is supported by the Ladner Rotary and open to students in grades 8 to 12, is to perform school, community and global service. Initiatives this year included participating in the Great Canadian Shoreline Clean-Up, organizing a huge clothing drive for Big Brothers, holding a hot chocolate and baked goods fundraiser for Food on the Corner, exploring volunteer opportunities with Reach Child and Youth Development Society, and cleaning up school gardens and public spaces.

Last month Interact students collected a variety items to donate to the Downtown Eastside Women's Shelter in Vancouver.

Interact's goal was to collect specific items such as travel-sized toiletries, toothpaste and toothbrushes, hair brushes/combs, and makeup and/or perfume samples. Women's clothes were also gathered and donated to the shelter.

Students or parents who wish to find out more about the Interact Club are asked to contact teacher-sponsor Heather Colls.
