Each year the Providence Community comes together to serve the poor and vulnerable by means of a Lent Drive. In 2017 our lent drive was to support the indigenous villages in Guatemala. The children of these villages had high rates of sickness due to improper stove ventilation, unclean water, and latrines. As a community, we raised over five thousand dollars to build clean water systems. In 2018 our science department chair, David Bird, traveled to the indigenous Guatemalan village, San Antonio Beleju to help build the water systems. While Mr. Bird was there, he observed a great need in the schools. For this year’s lent drive we are going to fundraise to support education in these villages. We will fundraise for paper, pencils, backpacks, and shoes.
Between March 8 – 18, homerooms will hold 3 separate “flash collections”. Spirit points will be awarded to the class with the highest average per student in that class. Parents are welcome to contribute! “Flash collections” (the 1st of which is Friday, March 8th) will be announced the day prior, so students can remember to bring $. Go, Pioneers!
Thank you for your participation & support!!
