The first presentation to Council on Monday, April 15th was a public thank you from Elizabeth MacDonald at the Kitimat Food Share Program who wished to thank Mrs. Baker’s Grade 4/5 class at Saint Anthony’s Elementary School for fundraising for them.
“At Food Share, we have a lot of people who support the community, but I think the most special are the ones who really touch our hearts and its things like these guys, from [Mrs.] Baker’s class at Saint Anthony’s and they have raised an enormous amount of money for Food Share to help feed people living in the community who aren’t as fortunate as they are,” said McDonald.
The students did a penny drive which raised $100 worth of pennies. They also had a bake sale. All together, they brought in a whopping 600 dollars. Baker presented McDonald with the Cheque at Council.
Monaghan thanked the kids and gave each of them a little gift, a snowflake pin.
“When you think about what these kids have done and what we probably haven’t done as adults, it’s kind of shameful,” said Monaghan.
