St. Paul Catholic School gives their heart and a hand up for Fort McMurray residents:
The giant wildfire is no longer destroying Fort McMurray, but it has taken a great toll on the City. On May 11th, St. Paul Catholic School came together to raise money for the damage done to Fort McMurray. Students were encouraged to donate a minimum of two dollars to be out of uniform for the day and wear red in support of the Canadian Red Cross.
"It think it is really wonderful that the community is coming together and I think it will really touch the people of Fort McMurray," said Hannah Jones, a grade 10 student at St. Paul. "I have family that lives there so it means a lot that we are doing this. I've been praying for them."
The community was very generous and raised over $1,100. All funds will go to the Canadian Red Cross and will be matched by the government.
