$1000 Raised for the Josie Foundation

In late November of this year, the students of Blackville School had rallied together in an attempt to raise both awareness and funding for the Josie Foundation. The Josie Foundation is a local, non-profit organization that provides financial relief to those who are battling a chronic illness.

Through a number of fundraisers, such as bake sales, money drives and contests, a total of $1000.00 was raised. This money will go towards helping families who are in a difficult financial state due to having to deal with the stresses associated with having a chronic disease.

Jake Stewart, the local MLA and founder of the Josie Foundation, is scheduled to make an appearance at the school and accept the donation.
