Elementary students from the Save Our Youth Foundation have used money earned from a bake sale to give back to the Crisis Centre.
All funds raised by the students will go towards victims of domestic abuse.
The students are all girls between the ages of 9-11 years, who say giving back to the community is something which the foundation has always stood for. One member of the foundation Abiaa Cole says she is happy with the growth made thus far by the foundation and credits the leader of the foundation.
“We help people in many different ways we donate to a lot of different clubs and a lot of different organisations to help lot of people I am very happy, we have come a long way especially Mr. Roper he’s a very nice man and intelligent leader.”
The students have raised around $200 from baking cakes and other confectioneries which to the delight of Child Case Manager at the Crises Centre Ms. Nancy Davey who says that the children are doing more than just giving back.
“They’re starting to look at what some of the issues are in their community it’s not just for the Crisis Centre but many other non-profits as well so even any amount of money they tried to tell us it wasn’t very much but for us it’s a lot and every time someone adds to the pile it’s more that we can do for women and children,” Ms. Davey said.
All the girls attend the Triple C School and they plan to have more charity events to assist within the larger community.
