CARRABASSETT VALLEY – Carrabassett Valley Academy students and faculty, in conjunction with the Rev. Pam Morse of the Sugarloaf Area Christian Ministry, will go door to door to collect canned food items from homes in Kingfield and Carrabassett Valley on Saturday, Dec. 3.

The canned food will be given to the United Methodist Economic Ministry for distribution.

Last year CVA collected more than 1,000 cans from residents.

On Saturday, Dec. 10, CVA, Sugarloaf and the ministry will collect unwrapped gifts for area needy children.

The Stuff A Bus project will be held from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.

People are welcome to bring unwrapped toys for children and help Stuff A Bus parked outside the Sugarloaf base lodge. After the bus is filled, the toys will be wrapped and sent to Operation Santa Claus for distribution.

CVA Headmaster John Ritzo said, “CVA and the Sugarloaf Area Christian Ministry have been working together for many years on our canned food drive. This community outreach program is an excellent way for our student-athletes to pause from their busy schedules to give back to the community.We are very excited to continue the tradition of the canned food drive and very pleased to offer Stuff A Bus as a new program this year that will further serve our community.”
