Notre Dame Grad Service Project donates $50,000 to Child Advocacy Centre

From Red Deer Catholic Regional Schools

As of June, this year’s grad service project “Be the Voice” at École Secondaire Notre Dame High School has raised a total of $50,000 for the Central Alberta Child Advocacy Centre. 

Over the past seven months, students in conjunction with St. Francis of Assisi Middle School have been fundraising through different activities and events, such as bake sales, school challenges, food trucks, etc. From April 1-6, École Secondaire Notre Dame High School hosted their Grad Service Project week, where teams of six students and their team teacher worked together to raise money, compete in ridiculous challenges and earn points. On the final day of that week, student teams, along with a parent completed a 22-hour extreme scavenger hunt throughout Red Deer without a vehicle.

“The service project is a Notre Dame tradition. It is fantastic to watch students connect with the charity they chose. They work so hard to raise funds and make a difference. The student’s passion for success of this project extends to their families. It’s great to see everyone getting involved, have fun and truly make a difference in our community. They realize they can contribute and make our community even better. It’s a life lesson,” said Grad Service Project Coordinator, Shannon Nivens at École Secondaire Notre Dame High School.

The Central Alberta Child Advocacy Centre was the charity of choice this year because students liked the idea of supporting children in their local community. Each year the graduating class from École Secondaire Notre Dame High School chooses a charity to raise funds for through their Grad Service Project. For the past 11 years, students have raised more than $600,000 for student chosen charities.

Kick it to the Curb every month this summer!

From the City of Red Deer: More dates to Kick it to the Curb this summer

Kick it to the Curb has returned with more dates to provide Red Deerians the opportunity to find a new home for unwanted and unused items.

This year, on the third weekend of the month from May to October, residents are encouraged to kick their unwanted items to the curb. Previously, the Kick it to the Curb program ran only twice a year – once in June and again in October.

“Residents love the Kick it to the Curb program, and the feedback we get most is that the event should happen more often,” said Lauren Maris, Environmental Program Specialist. “Since weather is always a factor, and summers are so busy, offering more dates allows for higher participation.”

Residents are encouraged to clearly set out and identify their unwanted items with a “free” label so others can find a new life for them.

Items that are always a hit include books, DVDs, furniture and tools. To see a list of what is prohibited, like child car seats, visit www.reddeer.ca/kickit.

Similar to past years, the Kerry Wood Nature Centre will be offering their Trash to Treasure Swap Meet for anyone who would rather not put small, unwanted items on their curb or whose home doesn’t have a curb. The Trash to Treasure Swap Meet will be held the same six weekends throughout the spring, summer and fall as Kick It to the Curb.

Mark your calendars for Kick It to the Curb weekends: June 15-16, July 20-21, August 17-18, September 21-22, and October 19-20.
