On April 24, the Pastoral Animator, Sister Mona, brought forth an idea to the school community of Paul-Desmarais Catholic Secondary School. The idea – to raise money via the school’s online store.
Put in motion, the students, parents and staff raised a whopping $5,613.75 for the Stittsville Food Bank in less than one week. The money raised “surpassed all of our expectations” said Lynne Trottier an administrator at Paul-Desmarais.
The school is truly grateful for the idea ignited by Sister Mona and implemented with such success. The generosity was shown by those kids attending the school from families in Stittsville, Kanata, Carleton Place, Almonte and Arnprior areas.
