Saint John High Collecting For Romero House

If you have winter boots that are still in pretty good shape and you don't need, Saint John High would like to have them so they can be given to Romero House.

 A teacher at Saint John High Barry Ogden has been at this for a long time and seen a change in public attitudes over the years when, at one time, no one really wanted to talk about poverty.

Ogden says in ordfer to defeat poverty, they city will have to get rid of its slums and expand its post secondary school opportunities.

The school is also collecting, all year round, children's books for the food banks . The 26th annual food drive for the Community Food Basket in the South End will be getting underway shortly.
