Students at Neerlandia Covenant Canadian Reformed School, under the direction of Jacqueline Hamoen, recently held a fundraiser in support of the Crisis Pregnancy Care Centre in Edmonton. This was the first step to start an ARPA School Club there. We look forward to seeing what else these students will do! A big thank you to Jacqueline and the students: Tristan J, Jewel, Olivia, Ally, Mason, and Tristin VL for their hard work on this. See pictures of their experience and the write-up that was in their school newsletter, below.
Last week I had the privilege of taking 6 students to the Pregnancy Care Centre. A BIG THANK YOU goes to the grade six class who raised over $300 from a bake sale. All proceeds raised were used to buy much needed products for the Crisis Pregnancy Care Centre in Edmonton. THANK YOU to all those who gave donations to Tristan J for this great event. He was a big part of this trip. Upon arriving there the students received a bit of a tour with an explanation of how they help those in need. I think the biggest shock to them was the fact that this place was a house instead of a large building. When asked what their first impression was, most replied, “It’s a house and it looks very comfortable”. They were all excited that they could raise so many items for such a cause. The Pregnancy Care Centre welcomed these gifts with big smiles and thankfulness.
