PBS LENTEN PROJECT: UPDATE
Many thanks to all who have made donations in support of the Ghider family. We are continuing to collect household items (see attached list) and cash donations. Your generosity is truly appreciated!
The Ghider family are refugees from Eritrea who have settled in Seaforth. They arrived in Canada with no belongings as they were living in a refugee camp in Ethiopia before their arrival.
Led by the students on our Social Justice Committee, we have decided to support the Ghider family by collecting items they will need as they begin to build their new life in Canada. Each class has been assigned a room in the house or a person in the family to help. The items we're collecting can be purchased new or can be gently used. Gift certificates or donations of money are also welcome. The attached lists give suggestions for donations. Thank you for giving your children an opportunity to help the less fortunate!
