Operation Christmas Cheer

Fernie Secondary School students helped the Salvation Army Fernie spread Christmas cheer.

Submitted

Every year the students at Fernie Secondary look for ways to spread the warmth of Christmas cheer within the community and beyond.  Many students spent their afterschool hours and weekends ringing The Salvation Army kettle bells.  To increase the warmth of Christmas, many students took the initiative to sing happy Christmas carols and songs while ringing the bells.

The students also realized many people in the community and the world are in need.  The students conducted bottle drives, sold hotdogs at Overwaitea, had raffles, bake sales, coin drives, and used the proceeds from the last school dance to collect money to buy food items for the Fernie food bank.  In addition, the money raised also went to help with typhoon relief in the Philipines with the ShelterBox program.

Happy holidays everyone!
