High school students organized four fundraising this year. Here are the details and the results of their hard work:
1. ROCHAMBEAU for UNICEF
The club "Rochambeau for UNICEF" organized several fundraising events again this year: aTrick or Treat fundraising, a Movie Night for students, and a sale of Xmas cards. The money collected, $ 776, was sent to UNICEF for the purchase of vaccines for children in underdeveloped countries.
Thank you Camille Jouane and Zelewit Molla for all your hard work, and your solidarity!
2. SMILE TRAIN
A group of seniors organized a fundraising to help children in underdeveloped countries. Once a week, they sold donuts, and raised $ 279 for the organization "Smile Train", which provides surgeries for children with a cleft palate.
Thank you Jasmine Wong, Juliette Hart, Oiane Badre, Kenza Ammar, Sophie Ehrlich-Adam, Annabelle Piot, Adèle Roulmann, Philip Najjar, Rita Raghay, Renaud Chailloux and Basil Hart for your dedication and your generosity!
3. GOGO GRANDMOTHERS
For the second year, a class of 10th graders collected funds among themselves to help feed orphans in Africa. They raised $ 375 for the organization "Gogo Grandmothers", which provides food for malnourished children in Malawi.
Thank you Anne-Sophie Jeanty for this initiative, and all the Seconde 3 students for their generosity and their solidarity!
4. CAPITAL AREA FOOD BANK
The club "the Culture Clique" organized a fundraising, selling chips twice a week last winter. These 10th graders wanted to organize a cultural event in the spring. With the school lockdown, and the pandemic hitting close to home, they decided to be part of the COVID19 relief effort. Thus, the money raised, $ 203, was sent to the Capital Area Food Bank, which is part of the organization "Feeding America".
Thank you Farida Njapdounke , Fatma Raghani, and Anne-Sophie Jeanty for your generosity and your solidarity in the time of the pandemic.
I want to salute all these students who worked silently, but continuously, to make our world a better place.
