In Pays de Gex the yearly food collection in supermarkets by the French Banque Alimentaire is going to take place on Friday November 25 and Saturday November 26. Spoken French is fine, but not a necessity, if at least someone in each group of students speaks French. (There are many English speaking customers.
The Croix Rouge (Red Cross) is coordinating the event and volunteers are needed in:
- Carrefour La Poterie (the big Carrefour in Ferney-Voltaire)
- Migros in the shopping center Val Thoiry
It is suggested that students from College du Leman participate after school on Friday afternoon until the shops are closing,
- 4.30 – 9.00 PM (or until the shops close)
- 8.30 AM – 9.00 PM or
- 8.30 – 10.00 AM
- 4.30 – closing.
It is necessary to fill in and sign a form at Croix Rouge beforehand and show a passport and leave a copy of the passport. For those below 18 years of age, the parent has to sign.
Minors need written permission from their parents, and an adult (min 18 years) needs to be in the group of four at any time.
The students need to fill in their REACH forms and take them to the supermarkets, so they can be evaluated and signed or handed in to the Red Cross on the same day.
