A group of students at Memorial Composite High School have decided to make a difference in their world and with the help of their dedicated teachers, have formed a group called Live Free. After working closely with the Global Enrichment Foundation over the past three years, they turned their focus to take a more local approach. After the students researched local charitable organizations they found Bag of Hope! The students worked tirelessly throughout the second semester, putting on bake sales, barbecues, and bottle drives in order to raise money for the cause. At the end of the semester the students filled 8 bags of necessities for those in need, and also sent a cheque directly to Bag of Hope for $666.00. Wow!!
We are so impressed and grateful to this group of students and teachers. We are humbled that you have chosen to help Bag of Hope when there are so many organizations out there in need. Obviously this group of students are an exceptional light for today’s teens and we are sure that they are going to inspire those around them with their generosity of spirit and dedication to hard work.
Bag of Hope starts back to campaign for donations in the Fall, but we all know that the patrons of Jasper Place Health and Wellness still need our support throughout the year. Please feel free to join the Live Free group’s efforts and donate anytime and drop off donations at 201, 17873 – 106a Avenue, Edmonton.
Congratulations on all your success!
