St. Joseph Grad Service Project week for Family Services of Central Alberta

Published

From Red Deer Catholic Regional Schools

 It’s Grad Service project week for Grade 12 students at St. Joseph High School. This year, students have chosen to support Family Services of Central Alberta through their Grad Service project, because of what the organization stands for, specifically with youth anxiety and seniors with dementia.

“We are so excited to be raising awareness and support for Family Services of Central Alberta as their organization coincided with not only the issues-of-interest our students identified and also aligned with our school’s faith journey. Helping those most vulnerable in our community (the young and elderly) is something our students are very passionate about,” said Grad Service Project Coordinator, Ashley Visscher at St. Joseph High School.
During this week, students are participating in activities that raise awareness and support for Family Services of Central Alberta, which includes:
  • Monday, April 29 – Grad Fundraising Kick-Off Barbeque, where students can purchase a hot dog and pop for lunch.
  • Tuesday, April 30 – Restaurant Takeover at State and Main with local celebrity servers and a silent auction.
  • Wednesday, May 1 – Dessert Day, where students can purchase ice cream sundaes.
  • Thursday, May 2 – Movie Day, where all students can pay to watch Spiderman in the gymnasium.
  • Friday, May 3 – Paint Day, where Father Henri Voisin School students partner with high school students to learn about regulating emotions through artwork.
St. Joseph High School serves over 690 Grade 10 to 12 students in Red Deer. As a learning institution, the St. Joseph High School is committed to serving students with a complete offering of learning opportunities delivered within the context of Catholic teachings.

Lacombe's chairs for charity

Thank you to NOWCO HOME HARDWARE IN LACOMBE for submitting this post

NOWCO HOME HARDWARE’S 2NDANNUAL CHAIRS FOR CHARITY

Nowco Home Hardware has organized Chairs for Charity for the 2ndyear and it will run from July 19-31. The project started last year as a collaboration of downtown businesses to decorate downtown during Lacombe Days and raise money for a local charity. In 2018, forty five downtown businesses each bought and painted a chair to raffle off. The chairs were left on display during the 4 days of Lacombe Days and over $3100 was raised for the lunch program at J.S. McCormick School.

This year Deanna Nowochin, who has spearheaded the event wanted things to be bigger and better, so all Lacombe businesses were invited to participate in the event. This year there will be 75 chairs on display around Lacombe from July 19-31. The event was extended this year to ensure there was ample time for people to hear about Chairs for Charity and purchase tickets. The charities benefitting from 2019’s project are Lacombe Minor Football and the breakfast program at Terrace Ridge School.

This year we have 2000 tickets available, with a fundraising goal of $10,000. Raffle tickets will be sold for $5 each and can be purchased at any participating business. You can see a full list of participating businesses and photos of their chairs at www.chairsforcharitylacombe.comor by searching “Chairs for Charity Lacombe” on Facebook.
