On Oct. 18th, Mr. David Tang, the CEO of Tzu Chi Foundation, Canada, represented the Foundation to present a $3000 check to the Principal, Mr. Dave Heard, of Windsor Elementary School in Burnaby for supporting the Breakfast Program.
Tzu Chi volunteers from Burnaby Service District started to run the Breakfast Program for Windsor Elementary from Feb. of 2007 till now. Not only donation of funds, volunteers also provided service in the program. During the pandemic, the service was stopped for more than one and half years.
From the new school year beginning in September, the service was resumed by the request of the new Principal, Dave Heard. On Mon./Wed./Fri., a team of 2-3 Tzu Chi volunteers will serve milk, corn cereal and cheese. On Tues. & Thurs., toast, yogurt or juice will be served. Each day, about 15 students will enjoy the breakfast, or 220 students will be benefitted every month.
