Coffee drive profits to literacy program, PAC

If you have someone on your Christmas list who like a good cup of coffee then you might consider the this seasonal option.

It’s that time of year again at West Boundary Elementary School…yes the much anticipated Christmas Coffee Drive.

WBES PAC partners with Kent and Denise and Floyd and Linda of the Rock Creek Trading Post to raise money for literacy at the school as well as aiding communities that grow coffee beans to have better access to schooling for their children and better living conditions and medical care for all people in the community.

Every year the artistic abilities of the students are stimulated by the staff to come up with some beautiful artwork for the coffee labels. The theme this year is Christmas from the Heart.

Coffee orders are to be turned in by December 10, so if you want to contribute by purchasing some coffee please contact any student at West Boundary Elementary or phone Melanie Zane at 250-528-0376. Coffee beans will be available at the WBES Christmas concert on Dec. 11 as well.
