The girls worked together at recess and lunch hours every day to make their charms and bracelets. They prepared announcements to read to the students during opening exercises so that everyone would know and come and support their efforts.
The BBQ was a huge success and the girls earned $126 to be donated. Special thank you to the parents of the "Loomatics" who were so supportive of this project! Today we took a field trip to Siloam Mission to donate the proceeds of the sale. The girls also decided to donate the extra charms and bracelets as gifts to the patrons. Here are some things we learned on our field trip:
* Siloam Mission is in downtown Winnipeg and is an organization that offers meals, shelter and clothing to the less fortunate
* Each day they serve up to 1200 meals
* Our donation will feed 40 people
* Each week approximately 260 people visit the clothing donation room
Linwood would like to thank these girls for their dedication to making a difference in the lives of others. We are proud of you, girls!
