Stu­dents buy a cow for a fam­ily

The Compass - - SOCIALS -

Stu­dents of Carbonear Col­le­giate have big hearts when it comes to help­ing oth­ers in need.

Last Christ­mas stu­dents and teach­ers raised $400 to help a fam­ily in Sierra Leone.

Stu­dents do­nated money to Plan In­ter­na­tional Canada to buy a cow for a fam­ily. The an­i­mal will pro­vide the fam­ily with milk and en­able them to sell the ex­tra milk to earn money to buy other es­sen­tials the fam­ily needs like food, cloth­ing and sup­plies.

The re­main­der of the money was used to pur­chase class­room es­sen­tials for stu­dents.

The gifts of hope pro­vide chil­dren in need of a bet­ter life with sus­tain­able and last­ing im­prove­ments in the ar­eas of com­mu­nity health, ed­u­ca­tion, and im­proved op­por­tu­ni­ties for self-suf­fi­ciency.

Since Christ­mas stu­dents also par­tic­i­pated in Rice Day where they raised money for poor fam­i­lies in de­vel­op­ing coun­tries.

Most re­cently they par­tic­i­pated in a fundraiser for Epilepsy where they raised money by pur­chas­ing pur­ple arm bracelets and dress­ing in pur­ple for pur­ple day. The stu­dents con­tinue to sup­port wor­thy causes in their com­mu­nity and across the world.
