Deborah Dumontelle: Family Room Coordinator for the Ronald McDonald House family room at Health Sciences North, Mrs. Miscio: Educational Assistant, Gabriel McIntyre, Desirea Collins-Darlington, Daniel Penton, Hannah Ransom, Zackary Tammi-Ledrew: Gr. 6 Charity Champs and Ms. Timpano, St. Francis School Principal.

December 23, 2017 - In the month of August, St. Francis School received news that one of their students was ill. He was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer and needed immediate treatment in Toronto. Matthew and his family are considered part or our St. Francis FLAMES family, so it was only natural to want to help", says Principal, Ms. Timpano. A school EA, Mrs. Miscio, came up with the idea of having 'Mondays for Matthew", where students brought in change on each Monday in December and all proceeds go to Ronald McDonald house in Toronto. "St. Francis Charity Champs from Mrs. DeAngelis and Mrs. Mallette's class took the lead and made 'change cans' for each classroom. The fundraiser has been a tremendous success! The school has currently raised $1000.00 and continue to collect funds. All funds raised in the month of December are matched by a donor, Michael Higgins. With his contribution, our fundraiser will bring in well over $2000.00 for Ronald McDonald House.", says Mrs. Miscio. St. Francis students, staff and parents are thrilled to be able to help Matthew and others like him who continue to need life saving treatments away from home.
