Tri-district school fundraiser nets more than $40,000 for Fort McMurray evacuees

October 10, 2018

During the month of May, the students and staff of schools within Grande Prairie Public School Division, Grande Prairie Catholic School Division and Peace Wapiti Public School Division accepted a challenge to join forces in raising funds for those impacted by the Fort McMurray and area wildfire.

Student-led fundraisers, ranging from popcorn sales to community barbecues and car wash events, have generated $40,628.48 to date, along with donated goods. Fundraising is ongoing at many schools, and additional dollars raised beyond the initial tally will also be donated to the Canadian Red Cross Alberta Fires Appeal.
