Celebrating Birthdays and Kindness at Gron
Two Senior Kindergarten students at Ecole Gron Morgan Public School did something truly amazing on their birthday. Instead of receiving gifts, they gave a major gift to a local charity!
Aria and Peyton held a joint birthday party over the weekend and in lieu of gifts they collected donations for the Ecole Gron Morgan Ishtmus program (formerly Blessings in a Backpack).
Together they raised a whopping $1000!!!
Isthmus is a Canadian charity that provides food for hungry students during the weekends. While many students are supported by school lunch programs, Isthmus is one of the only programs in the country to provide students with reliable access to food that bridges the food security gap they experience over the weekends.
