A Christmastime welcome

École Woodward Hill Elementary School's Cozy Kids Campaign to benefit clients of DIVERSEcity Community Resources Society.

  • Dec. 23, 2012 6:00 a.m.

From Dec. 1-12, students from École Woodward Hill Elementary School collected donations for the Cozy Kids Campaign to benefit clients of DIVERSEcity Community Resources Society. Items such as new or near-new winter coats, hats, scarves and gloves as well as bags of rice, beans, oil and lentils were collected and distributed to more 20 new immigrant and refugee families in need.

“This is the third year the school has supported our clients, with the Cozy Kids Campaign” said Lesley Woodman, executive director of DIVERSEcity.

“It is heartwarming to witness their compassion and sense of social duty. Of course the real benefactors are the children and families who are recipients of their generosity and hard work. They receive tangible proof that other young people are welcoming them to the community.”
