GP Catholic Students exceed fundraising goal for Habitat for Humanity

Grande Prairie Catholic School District students have reached and surpassed their goal of raising $100,000 for Habitat for Humanity.

Two years ago students set their goal, which is the minimum required for the materials needed to build a home, and have now surpassed it by over $17,000.

Superintendent Karl German says he is very proud of his students.

“It was a dream to try and raise $100,000 so that somebody in the area could receive a home, as well as somebody in El Salvador would receive a home. I don’t think we actually thought we’d ever even hit a target of $100,000, and to be $117,000 is amazing, and we’re just so pleased with the work the kids did.”

Germann says while the additional money will go towards another Habitat for Humanity project, students have moved onto some smaller fundraising projects for the time being.
