Students Raise Over $500 for Christmas Giving Tree

Blackville School students raised over $500.00 on Thursday. Students donated $2.00 each so they could wear their pyjamas. 

The funds will go toward a District-wide effort to raise money for the Christmas Giving Tree hosted by 95.9 Sun FM radio station. 

This is the fifth year for the event and Max Aitken Academy made a special call out to other schools in the District because raising the necessary funds has been difficult with COVID-19 restrictions.

The Giving Tree provides a gift to 500 senior citizens who reside in nursings homes. The goal is to raise $5000.00.
