Mentor Primary and TEAM Students Share Notions of Hope and Home

20e52f40-144b-4669-935c-dbbad8fe8cf8This past month, more than 100 primary and TEAM students participated in a card-making contest. This contest, which is in support of Habitat for Humanity’s efforts to build affordable housing for families in the GTA, touched upon themes that are particularly relevant during the holiday season. Thank you to all those students who participated in this initiative.

Congratulations go to Rachel Lee, Ellen Wang, Juliet Rawlyk, Navyaa Johry, and Robbie Roti, whose drawings were selected for the note cards. While the ideas behind all of the submissions were thoughtful and touching, the Council selected the 5 drawings that they believed most closely captured this year’s theme of Hope and Home.

These blank note cards will be made available for purchase in 3 different ways: at this year’s Gingerbread Build (at the Primary Campus on Saturday November 28), in the entrances of Primary and TEAM between 8:15am and 8:30am from December 1 – 11, or by order form. The cost for the cards is $10 for a set of 5, or $25 for 3 sets of 5. Each set is comprised of one note card from each of the 5 winners above.

100% of the proceeds from the sale of these cards will go to building affordable housing for families in Halton – Mississauga. Tax receipts will be issued for all purchases. Thank you for your continued support!
