Students in Central Collegiate’s Leadership 20 are raising funds in support of the Moose Jaw Police Service and Moose Jaw Victim Services. 

The funds will go towards purchasing items such as colouring books, stickers, Play-Doh and other items to help children through the stresses of testifying in court. 

“Our goal is to raise money to make care kits for young children who have to deal wit the stress of court. So, while they’re in court, they can have something special to make them feel special even during stressful times,” said student Blake Maltais. 

The students are planning several fundraisers through May publicly and within their school. 

“We’re hoping to talk to people we know and post on social media and at school. We’re doing a loose change challenge. We’re challenging everyone around the school to donate their loose change to the cafeteria, and then all those donations are going to go to us for our project,” Maltais said. 

This is part of the students’ Leadership 20 project. Students had the option of helping support local organizations. Other organizations benefiting from the Central Collegiate students include the Moose Jaw Multicultural Council, Moose Jaw and District Food Bank and Moose Jaw Transition House 

Anyone interested in helping out can drop off donations at Central Collegiate.
