House of Lazarus lands a ton of food from Manotick students

HOL staff members Janet Carkner, Ralph Pulfer and Kim Merkley — with a portion of the items from St. Mark.

MANOTICK — The students and staff at St. Mark High School in Manotick pulled off a Christmas miracle recently by collecting over 2,000 pounds (one ton) of food for the House of Lazarus (HOL) Food Bank in Mountain. The food items — two full trailer loads worth — were collected by HOL staff on Nov. 13. The HOL Food Bank serves over 100 local families each month. Approximately 40 per cent of food bank clients are children and 10 per cent are seniors.
