A message from the Social Justice Club,
This Friday, December 20th, The Social Justice Club, is sponsoring Christmas Sweater/Christmas Colour Day at St.Teresa School. We are asking students to make a free-will “loose change” (quarters, loonies, toonies) donation.
We would like to purchase Christmas gifts for families in developing countries through Chalice, a Catholic charitable organization. If a student brings in a coin donation, we will give them a ballot for a raffle prize generously donated by Mr. Goodyear(“It’s going to be even better than last year!” says Mr. Goodyear :))
The donations collected from the classrooms will go towards buying a goat, cow or maybe even vaccinations! Last year, the Social Justice Club and students raised $510 dollars and we were able to buy a goat, piglets, baby chicks, children’s books, vaccinations, crop seeds, trade tools and equipment, and a sewing machine! A goat doesn’t just help the family but it helps the whole community. Any donations are appreciated. You do not need to bring money to dress up and enjoy the day. Thank you and Merry Christmas!
Rachel, Maya, Abigail and Tate on behalf of The Social Justice Club
