The Academy, which includes children ranging from grades 4-12 from different schools; 4-8 Alexander Forbes, 4-8 Ecole Montrose, 9-12 Charles Spencer began to donate to GPRC Room O’ Plenty 3 years ago.

A week before Halloween, students go out with flyers and inform people they will be coming by on Halloween to collect food. This year there was approximately 100 students plus their parents and staff volunteers who went out and collected food.

This year, 2,240 lbs of non-perishable food was donated this year to GPRC Room O’ Plenty from Dare to Scare, The Academy. The biggest year yet!
