Palgrave students raise money for Sleeping Children Around the World

As published by the Caledon Enterprise, January 25, 2014.

By Matthew Strader

Palgrave Public School students are carrying on a school tradition in seeing that children around the world have a comfortable spot to rest their heads at night.

Dave Dryden and the Sleeping Children Around the World (SCAW) charity was back at the local school recently to show the results of the work the kids did last year. They raised enough money for 76 bed kits that will go to needy children in various locations about the globe.

Dryden showed a video from a recent trip to Africa, in which SCAW members were participating in local celebrations and gifting bed kits to the local children.

“When we start handing stuff out, you can see how excited they are,” he said. “That’s because of you.”

Every year, Palgrave Public School engages in a campaign to raise money for the bed kits – which contain clothing, school supplies, a mosquito net (if applicable) and bedding for needy children – in partnership with the Palgrave Rotary.

A thirty-five dollar donation provides for one bed kit.

In their 2013 campaign, the students raised enough money, along with their matching donation from Palgrave Rotary, for 62 bed kits.
