Sydenham HS Donation
Linda Bates received a very pleasant surprise recently. The Sydenham High School Student Council presented Linda with a cheque for $240.00 for her project for the Children of Northern Haiti. The council learned of Linda's latest endeavor, to outfit all the children in the Haiti schools with school chairs. An $8.00 donation buys one chair for these children. The council decided to outfit one classroom of 30 students. Linda is in the process of fund raising for furniture for these classrooms. Donations can be dropped off at Revell's Ford in Verona, Dr. Sheldon Cook in Sydenham, or any Unity Savings Branch. For further information please contact Linda Bates at 613-374-1307.
