St. Bernadette School shows tremendous generosity when it comes to the various charitable organizations we support throughout the year. This is exemplified in our recent recognition in the BC Catholic newspaper for our work with St. Vincent De Paul Society. Since the start of the school year, we have supported 3 other charitable organizations – Holy Childhood Association, Covenant House and Chalice. We are happy to report that we have raised the following funds for these organizations thanks to your generosity:
Holy Childhood Association – $1,084.33
Covenant House – $490.05
Chalice – $393.90
Between now and the end of the year we will be supporting the SPCA, Development and Peace, RCAV Charities, *Toonies for Tuition, and the Heart and Stroke Foundation. We look forward to your continued support.
*Toonies for Tuition is a new charity this year. More information to come in the following weeks.
