“. . . whatever you do for the least of these, my brothers and sisters, you do for me . . .” Matthew 25:40
St. Elizabeth Seton is joining the Halton Catholic Children’s Education Foundation (HCCEF) in the 24Hour Fast on June 3-4 to raise awareness for students in need. The fast can include Food, Electronics, Social Media, Sugar, or something else.
A message from our Student Ambassadors:
As a team, we are fasting to help us to connect to our neighbours who are in need – people who are forced to fast by their poverty. Struggling HCDSB families need your help to purchase food and other basic necessities. Neighbours who often need to make really tough choices between food or rent or clothes for their children. We are giving because, believe it or not, there is a great need in Halton to help students – 10.5% of Halton children live in low-income households. Amazingly that’s about 3600 HCDSB Students….we had no idea that many children were in need. Poverty remains a powerful factor in whether a student succeeds in school. Please be kind, be generous and sponsor one of us for the HCCEF 24 Hour Fast.
You can do a one-time donation or a monthly donation, which will help you to budget and will help more kids over the year.
Your St. Elizabeth Seton Student Ambassadors
