St. Raphael Students "Making Change" for Kids with Physical Disabilities

Zoe Cacciotti (grade 2), Alexis Bedard (grade 1) and Nathan McLean (grade 3) showcase twenty very heavy Nickels for the North buckets at St. Raphael School.

November 8, 2010 - For three weeks, the students at St. Raphael have been graciously donating their pocket change to help kids in their community who have physical disabilities. The final total has yet to be tabulated by Easter Seals but the results are expected to be tremendous.

Each class was given a bucket to fill as part of the Nickels for the North challenge.

It’s the perfect fundraiser for the students because they see students with physical disabilities in their building everyday. There are three Life Skills classrooms at St. Raphael School.

The campaign also heightened awareness of those who must rely on costly devices such as walkers, ramps and wheelchairs everyday.

Stay tuned for their results!
