The Community Access Program (CAP) at Yale Secondary has made its annual donation to local charities.

The program is for students who are moderately and mildly intellectually disabled. Since September, they have been collecting food donations for the Abbotsford Food Bank, along with the bottles they collect for their business throughout the year.

The group achieved its goal of raising $1,000 and has now donated money to the food bank, Youth Unlimited and Cyrus Centre.
