Over the past several weeks, Crestwood Preparatory College has been receiving donations from students in support of the Kawartha-Haliburton Children’s Fund and Sanctuary Toronto. Crestwood Gives! is an annual program run by Crestwood Preparatory College that asks students in the Crestwood Community to help those in need during the holiday season. The program has been running for over ten years and has benefited a variety of childrens charities in the Toronto area. The Kawartha-Haliburton Children’s Foundation provides support to benefit children who are involved with the Kawartha-Haliburton Children’s Aid Society. Crestwood Gives! has partnered with Kawartha-Haliburton for the past two years and provides items that benefit families including gifts for their holidays. Sanctuary Toronto is an organization that works with teenagers in the Toronto area who have been displaced from their homes. This year, Crestwood Gives! provided these teenagers with essential materials that will enhance their quality of living on a day to day basis.
Today (December 7th), donations from each homeroom were collected. The generosity displayed by students and their parents was overwhelming. It is occasions like these that demonstrate the kindness and spirit of giving that is evident every day in the Crestwood Preparatory College community. A special thanks to Ms. McCourt for organizing this year’s donations and all of the student ambassadors who took time out of their busy schedules to promote the event school wide.
