During the month of February, our class listened to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech. Students were asked to share their dreams for the future of our world.
Several students had a dream that people would not go hungry. As a class, we have explored the importance of giving,
especially during this Lenten season.
We are raising money for the Mississauga Food Bank to learn about the importance of giving back to those in need to fulfil
our Lenten promise of almsgiving.
This past year, nearly 10,000 children, or 333 full classrooms of kids needed support from a food bank in Mississauga.
During this incredibly difficult year, many parents have experienced job loss, reduced hours, and illness due to COVID-19. On top of paying for rent and utilities, many parents are struggling to put food on their tables.
Kids should be focused on learning and playing with friends,
not worrying about where their next meal is coming from.
If we come together, we can help to raise critical funds during this time of need. Donations of $10 or more will receive a tax receipt from
The Mississauga Food Bank.
Our donations will make it possible for The Mississauga Food Bank to distribute emergency hampers, consisting of non–perishable goods, fresh food and produce, personal care items, and essentials like baby formula, and diapers.
Please donate today to ensure no one in our community is left to go hungry.
