DURHAM -- Through Courtice Secondary School's recent Casual for a Cause campaign, staff raised $2,280 for Sleeping Children Around the World. The money bought 65 bed kits for children in developing countries. A Toronto-based organization, SCAW uses $35 donations to provide bed kits for children in 33 countries. Depending on local needs, the kits contain combinations of a mat or mattress, pillow, sheet, blanket, mosquito net, clothing and school supplies.
Donors receive photographs of children receiving their kits or special occasion message. For more information, visit www.scaw.org.
