Giving Comes Naturally to St. Anne Angels

St. Anne Catholic School students Zachary Keegan, Wesley Wawia, Hannah Leblanc, Isaac Oliveira, and Scott Tremblay, proudly showcase only a few the shoeboxes that were filled for Operation Christmas Child.

November 6, 2012 - Students in grade 6, 7, and 8, celebrating the virtue of Justice, had the opportunity to give to students in under-developed countries. St. Anne Catholic School in Hanmer worked with Our Lady of Peace Parish in Capreol to fill numerous shoeboxes that will be sent away through Operation Christmas Child.

Students watched videos to understand how Operation Christmas Child works and to see young children who received these gifts in previous years. The students were excited to fill their boxes and ultimately make a difference in the life of a child they do not know. “It was an honour to help out children who are not as fortunate as we are. Our small donations can brighten a childís Christmas,” said Jamie Poulin-Fortier.

“Our students were so excited to fill these shoeboxes. They were happy to know that they were able to give to others across the globe,” said Jody OíDaiskey, a teacher at the school.

St. Anne Catholic School participates in a number of different charity events throughout the year. At the end of November, the school will host the Q92/TD Bank Toy Drive. Students will also take part in the "Socks, Mitts, and Hats for the Homeless" campaign in conjunction with St. Kevin's Parish in Val Therese and the annual St. Anne Christmas Food Drive with St. Jacques Parish in Hanmer.

It is clear that St. Anne Angels have a huge heart for others in need. Every year, charity fundraisers are more successful than the last. Students have every reason to be proud of their accomplishments!
