Harry Balfour students give back

A group of grade three students at Harry Balfour School are getting in the spirit of the holiday season. The students have been partnered with an Olympic athlete-mentor all this semester as part of the Classroom Champions Program, which helped inspire them to organize a warm winter clothing drive for the less fortunate.

Two classrooms at the school joined forces during the month of December to collect 1605 items of warm clothing, including 682 pairs of socks, 359 pairs of mittens or gloves, 509 warm hats, as well as a number of scarves and long johns.

All the items collected are being taken to the Dinner for the Homeless at the Church of Christ tomorrow in Grande Prairie, where they will be handed out to the community’s vulnerable and less fortunate.
