SIMS kids give back
Grade 8 students from Salt Spring Island Middle School spend a day packing groceries at Country Grocer every year.
As school principal Keiko Taylor explains, “They do it without any expectations of payment.”
This year’s group received praise from many customers, she said.
“Several wanted to give them tips, and many of the cashiers expressed their appreciation of our students. We were invited back — anytime!”
Taylor said Country Grocer funds most of the SIMS enhanced breakfast program and are always generous to the school no matter what the request.
