The ELP Food Drive Challenge
On November 18th, 2016, approximately 30 English Language Program (ELP) students met after class and filmed a video at the school. The goal of this video was to promote a volunteer initiative for the upcoming holiday season: a food drive. For those that don’t know, a food drive is when a group of people donate non-perishable food items to a food bank, an organization that distributes the food to people who may not be able to afford it. By making the video, we wanted to raise awareness of our holiday season food drive campaign. The video is really catchy and effective in getting people’s attention because it is Mannequin Challenge. In other words, when we filmed the video, we had to stay completely still. As you will see, some students are frozen holding signs, playing sports, studying or travelling to the CN Tower, for example. Not only does the video explain the food drive but it also explains the other activities we do at the ELP. It was a lot of fun to make and everyone did a great job.
In the ELP Lobby the volunteers also made a holiday tree poster in the shape of a thermometer to track food drive’s progress. As we receive more donations, the thermometer gets warmer. Our goal this year is 250 items, one item for every student, staff and instructor at the ELP. Help our tree reach the warmest temperature. In return, the ELP volunteers made pins to thank you for your donation.
You can drop off your donations at the ELP Office until Monday, December 12, 2016. Thank you for donating!
