At White Hills Academy they decided to do things a little different this year.

Instead of holding a gift exchange for K-6 and having donations to international organizations for grades 7-12, the St. Anthony school decided, in the spirit of the Christmas season, to give a little something back to those in need within their own community.

High school students Annalee Hynes and Marcus Patey present Captain Ken Brown of the St. Anthony Salvation Army a cheque for over $600 for the Happy Tree.

This year, in fact, they raised nearly $1400 for the Charles S. Curtis Memorial Hospital’s paediatric unit and for the St. Anthony Salvation Army’s Happy Tree. A cheque presentation was held in the school gymnasium on Wednesday morning, Dec. 21.

Students from K-12 donated a number of food items to the St. Anthony and Area Food Sharing Association. Tom O’Reilly, chairperson, was on hand to accept the substantial donation from the student council – they organized the food drive as part of the school’s Christmas Olympics.

However, as of that date, the number was still rising as donations continued to pour in.

The student council also took on an initiative to help with the local food bank, the St. Anthony and Area Food Sharing Association. Students from K-12 donated various food items as part of their Christmas Olympics. The items were also presented on Dec. 21.
