Big Brothers Big Sisters gives thanks to Kemptville Public School’s Mlle. Stewart’s grade three class for their generous donation of $100! Kemptville Public School has an annual Drop N’ Shop event, where families donate gently used items, as well as new items, wrapping paper, gift bags, tags etc. for students to shop for their families and take home gifts for their loved ones prior to the holidays. The gifts were wrapped by the grade three students and tags created by the shoppers. Along with the support of parent volunteers and grade six students, the grade three students practised making change for the kindergarten shoppers.
The class chose to donate to BBBS to show thanks for all of the wonderful programming that they provide to students. Big Brothers Big Sisters has provided a wide range of programming such as the In School Mentoring Program, Go Girls and Game On, and most recently, an Afterschool Program, which has been a huge hit with the kids! Caseworker and former KPS student, Jaclyn Durham was present to accept the donation on behalf of the Agency. BBBS looks forward to continuing to provide Kemptville Public School with amazing programming for the students and introducing local kids to amazing local mentors!
