Last week teacher Jeanette Lewis’ grade 3 & 4 class at Halfmoon Bay Elementary held a Candy Cane Fundraiser for the Abbotsford Disaster Relief Fund. They gave each student in the school a candy cane and collected donations and raised a total of $814.20.
Photos attached of the carts the students decorated and used to deliver candy canes and collect donations, they created signs and made daily announcements at the school to advertise.
This was written by one of the grade 3 students:
Last week we raised $814.20 and it’s all going to flood victims in Abbotsford. We are very excited! We think it will help lots of people. Thank you Halfmoon Bay!
