Late last year, residents at Chartwell Muskoka Traditions wanted to do something special to benefit the students at Spruce Glen Public School. They decided that making and selling Christmas poinsettia pins would be just the thing, with the funds raised going to the school’s breakfast program.
This week, the school received $122.50 from their efforts.
The breakfast program serves almost the whole school, says teacher Michelle Haskin, and the students are grateful for the Chartwell residents’ contribution.
“We have a number of dedicated volunteers who come in every morning to toast bagels and arrange food and cut up vegetables and fruit and have it ready for the kids when they come off the bus,” she says. “A lot have a long bus ride and they’re pretty hungry when they get here.”
