The members of the Giving Tree assembled 30 birthday bags which will be donated to children living at Alpha House, a women's shelter. The students wrote heartfelt and compelling letters to local businesses requesting specific items for the birthday bags. We would like to thank Giant Tiger, Superstore, Walmart and our Linwood School Parent Council for their generous donations. Our younger members made beautiful birthday cards for the children to be included in the bags.
After the bags were assembled, Violet said "I love Giving Tree. It makes me happy to help people." All students left with happiness in their hearts as they learned that giving provides even more joy than receiving!
