Coin drive raises $5000 for Crossroads Pregnancy Centre & NCS
Updated: Jul 22, 2020
Mr. Sijpheer presents cheque and announces winning classrooms.
Throughout February students brought in loose change for our annual Home & Away Coin Drive fundraiser. Each week classrooms would weigh in then dump coins into the NCS replica gym piggy bank.
An amazing team of volunteers counted the huge pile of coins, and the results are in.
WE REACHED OUR GOAL!
Together we raised $5,046.70. Well done, NCS community! That's $2,000 more than we raised last year.
Half of the total amount is going to Nanaimo's Crossroads Pregnancy Centre for baby formula and strollers for families that are struggling, and half will stay at home to go toward our future building expansion. Thank you everyone for your generous donations!
Mr. Sijpheer presented a $2,523.65 cheque to CPC. Watch the video here.
