Helping Our Community

Making a Difference in SK
Helping our CommunityKenny Hill, a Senior Kindergarten student at Monsignor Lee school in Orillia, wanted to help those in need. She overheard her Mom expressing the need for food and household items for families within her own community. Kenny took action right away. She asked her Mom to help her organize a neighbourhood food drive for the Salvation Army. Kenny delivered over 200 flyers to her neighbours mailboxes. On Saturday, May 9, 2020, many of her neighbours left non-perishable goods at the end of their driveways. Kenny and her family drove around all day collecting the donations, while exercising contactless procedures. They ended up filling three van loads to donate! Kenny was following in Jesus’ footsteps by providing hope to those in need. What an incredible act of kindness and leadership.
