Beryl Ford youth leaders lend a helping hand
On March 18, the United Way Student Committee of Beryl Ford Public School attended the United Way Youth Spirit Awards at Sheridan College, where they received the Helping Hands Award. The students were recognized for their collaborative campaign efforts, which resulted in over $1,000 for the United Way of Peel Region.
During the United Way campaign, students attended school early to bake goodies for a bake sale using their own resources. They also facilitated the school's first open house to distribute information about the United Way of Peel and sell raffle tickets to raise money for United Way of Peel’s initiatives.
