HEARTS FOR THE HOMELESS
by G. Lakeman
It was a big week at Holy Redeemer! All of our students were involved in making bag lunches for the homeless and less fortunate at the George Spady Center in downtown Edmonton. Students also brought fruit from home as well as a $2 donation. The elementary students contributed by making cookies and Valentines for each lunch, while the junior high students put together delicious sandwiches assembly line style. The result being over 200 wonderful bag lunches that were delivered with perfect timing as the George Spady center was certainly in need of help this week.
This endeavor was spearheaded primarily by Mrs. Ference, with assistance from Mrs. Varly, Mrs. Flanagan and Mrs. Broks (not pictured). These ladies not only picked up all of the supplies needed, but also coordinated the students into the super-efficient assembly line. As well, a big thanks to Mrs. Wiebe, Mrs. Townsend, and Mrs. Karch, who had a big part in this project. These parents have certainly gone the distance to not only help homeless and less fortunate but to raise awareness at Holy Redeemer School. You really rocked it this week!
