How CSS helped Pakistan
During the week of September 9th to 17th, 6.1 held a bottle drive to help the people in Pakistan. Students from the school brought some bottles, can and milk jugs each day and 6.1 picked them up from the each room and counted how many bottle each class collected. 4.3 brought in the most bottles so now they receive an ice cream party! They brought in over 1700 bottles!
Here are some facts about the flood in Pakistan:
· More than 3.5 million children are at risk contracting a deadly water borne disease.
· 20% of Pakistan has been flooded
· More than 1500 people have died in the flooding
· Millions of people have been displaced
We raised $1400.00 and are donating that money to the Canadian Red Cross. The Government is matching the funds that are being donated. A total of $2800.00 is going to Pakistan.
We would like to thank all of the people who brought in cash donations and bottles for Pakistan. Way to go CSS!
