Purpose Secondary is hoping its next Krispy Kreme is another sweet success.
The independent high school, now based out of the former Army & Navy department store, is having a Krispy Kreme donut sale fundraiser on Wednesday, Nov. 24 from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. If the previous sale on Oct. 27 is any indication, you’ll want to get there earlier rather than later.
“At the last event, we raised over $570 and we sold out in less than an hour, so due to demand we decided to do another one,” said Rick Gill, Leadership 11 and 12 teacher.
The sale will be held in front of the Columbia St. Sandwich Company at 550 Columbia St. One dozen original Krispy Kreme donuts is $12 (cash only).
The fundraiser will support the breakfast and lunch programs that are offered to all students, activities and field trips linked to student learning and growth and monthly bus passes for students who cannot afford the expense.
Operated by the Lower Mainland Purpose Society, Purpose Secondary is able to enroll 90 students in Grade 8 to 12 who, for a variety of reasons, find it hard to have their learning, social emotional or mental health needs met in a traditional school setting.
