Happy New Year! How wonderful it is to reconnect with our King’s-Edgehill community as 2020 begins. As students and staff share stories about their holiday travels and traditions, it is great to remember those local families who benefited from our Youth-in-Action Christmas Giving campaign. Our beautifully decorated Christmas tree no longer graces the entrance to our Performing Arts Centre, but thoughts of the toys, gifts and food bank items, now in the hands of local families, can put smiles on our faces. It is pleasing to know that the collected items were delivered just before Christmas and shared with many families in need in our Windsor area. In addition to the gifts under the tree, a cheque for $370 was presented to Harvest House, our local soup kitchen in Windsor. The money was raised from our final Dress Down Day of 2019.
Special thanks are extended to those who decorated our Giving Tree, to all the students, staff and families who left donations, and to David Akinboro, Chaz Faucher, Alex Graham, and Owura and Papa Ofori who made the delivery on the final day of term. The lasting joy of the season really comes from the giving.
