KGIC Kares Update No.2
KGIC Kares! This year the generosity of our students and staff truly was amazing! In Canada, December is the month of giving to the less fortunate and showing our gratitude for things we have. Throughout the month of December all KGIC campuses worked very hard to raise money and collect non-perishable items to donate to our local food banks and charity foundations. A total of approximately $1500 was raised and hundreds of non-perishable food items were donated.
KGIC Toronto got their whole school involved by giving every communications class a different task to accomplish. The communications classes got prizes from some of the local shops (ManKind Haircuts, Second Cup coffee shop, and Cineplex movie tickets) to raffle off, they collected non-perishable food for the Daily Bread food bank, held a successful bake sale to raise money, handed out Candy Grams, and decorated their school with lovely positive hand-written messages. They raised in total $723.45 which was donated to CP24 Christmas Wish to buy toys for young children.
With the sale of KGIC buttons and a bake sale KGIC Vancouver and KGIBC-CTC Vancouver raised $542.75! The money was then donated to the Langley Food Bank. The Vancouver campuses chose this food bank because right before Christmas the food bank had many things stolen including their truck!
At KGIC Surrey, a Christmas tree was put up and staff and students were encouraged to drop off donations under the tree. Approximately $250 was raised by their hard work and thoughtfulness. KGIC Victoria focused on having a food drive. The communications 3 class organized speeches and went into
every class and presented the importance of giving to the less fortunate. All the communication classes had a competition to see who could collect the most amount of non-perishable items, everything was then given to The Mustard Seed Food Bank. As well, they raised about $40 by selling KGIC buttons. It was truly wonderful to see how our KGIC students learned about the struggles many people face around the holidays. It was great to see the compassion and generosity of our students. All charities and food banks that received food and money were so grateful towards KGIC and KGIBC-CTC.
