Brownridge Helping Hands for the Philippines

12 Dec

In light of the tragedy that is currently unfolding in the Philippines, students at Brownridge have been collecting money to support relief efforts. Led by the Voice Team, students have taken part in the Helping Hands campaign. The Helping Hands initiative is a Board-wide campaign that has been developed to support classes and schools that are interested in doing something to assist.

Each day, the Voice Team is sharing announcements providing the students of Brownridge with information about how the Philippines has been affected by the typhoon as well as encouraging them to donate a toonie or non-perishable food items. Each person that brings in a toonie is provided with a hand. The hand represents that students are lending a hand to support those in need. The hands are decorated and displayed around a map of the Philippines in the front foyer to show our support. Our hope is to raise enough money to cover the entire map of the Philippines.

As parents, you can address this issue with your child. Remind your children that their help can make a difference!

Thank you for your support.
