Me-to-We Team: Popcorn for People
In their first full year of operation, the Me-to-We Team at St. Joseph’s Catholic Elementary School in Toledo, Ontario has raised awareness and funds for a variety of social justice initiatives within the local community, Canada and around the world. The hard-working Me-to-We School Club is inspired by the work of the “Free the Children” organization founded my Craig and Marc Kielburger. In November and December, the We-Team held weekly popcorn sales and specialty jewelry sales to raise money for the local food bank and their “Adopt-a-Village” global initiative. The Me-to-We team was proud to present $200.00 to the Athens Food Bank for their Christmas Food Drive. In February, the We-Team will be resuming Popcorn Sales to raise money for their adopted village in Haiti with a focus on Healthcare and education and to support Mr. Mark Quattrocchi’s, “One Ride Please” Initiative to build schools in rural China and India.
