Student led almsgiving project donates to Kingston Humane Society

May 03, 2017

Students presenting cheque to Humane society employeeOn April 26, Paul Coulter's grade 7/8 class presented a cheque to the Kingston Humane Society after their class led an almsgiving fundraiser project.

As a class, through student led initiatives, the grade 7/8's were able to raise $1,021.20 as part of their almsgiving fundraiser.  This is the first year that Mr. Coulter's class has taken on such an initiative, but the class saw a need to give back to the community. Mr. Coulter gave the class the option to donate to a local, national or international charity. In small groups, the class thought of 6 different charities, did research on these charities and then voted on which one would be the recipient of their fundraising.

The Kingston Humane Society received 11 votes, from a class of 26.

To raise funds, the class brainstormed ideas and decided on a PJ day, with a $2.00 buy in, and bake sale. The class worked together to create detailed posters around the school, gaining school support.

Some students described this as the best Lenten journey they've had and are extremely proud of what they've accomplished.

The cheque was presented to Tanya from the Kingston Humane Society, after she explained to the class where the donations go and how they can help further as volunteers at the KHS.
