Students 'adopt' a village

St. Francis de Sales students send animals to Haiti

The B.C. Catholic has a story from Carling Bauer, a grade 7 student from St. Francis de Sales elementary, that shows the spirit of stewardship in young people:
I feel so bad for kids who have nothing, so for Christmas, a few other girls and I teamed up to bring kids in need a special present. Many of the girls knew that giving a small amount would make a difference if we worked together as a group.

Katrina, Lauren, Danielle, Carissa, and I, students from St. Francis de Sales elementary school, came together to donate money to "Free the Children." We sent a goat and cow to Haiti hoping to help the lives of those living in poverty.
