Donations to Canadian Red Cross to assist the people of Haiti
Submitted by Aneta Costin on Tue, 01/19/2010 - 18:05
Each day since last week’s devastating earthquake in Haiti we have seen pictures and heard stories of unbelievable suffering and devastation. We have also seen confirmation from around the world that we are indeed our brothers’ and sisters’ keepers.
According to the TDSB website, our school board is supporting donations to two charities, one of which is the Canadian Red Cross. In order to allow our students and community to help newly identified brothers and sisters, we will be collecting donations for the Canadian Red Cross at Forest Hill Collegiate starting on Tuesday and running until Friday. We will kick off our campaign with a coin collection on Tuesday during Period 2.
Parents who wish to send donations via their children may do so either by cash or cheque. Donations of $10 or more will generate a receipt for income tax purposes. If you wish a tax receipt, please send a cheque for $10 or more, made out to The Canadian Red Cross, with your name and address clearly indicated on your cheque.
As you know, the Canadian government will match individual contributions to a maximum of $50 million.
I know I can count on the FHCI community of staff, students and parents to assist the relief efforts in Haiti.
