Toonie Tuesday

Reminder Toonie Tuesday at JYES on Tuesday, Feb 27 - send a toonie with your child or more.  Tax receipts issued for cheques made out to the Education Foundation for $20 or more!!!

Please read about the amazing work of the Education Foundation at:  http://www.educationfoundationottawa.ca/  Not every child is lucky enough to start their school day with the same foot forward as everyone else. Some are behind before they even step into the classroom. Often what’s missing is the most basic of things. The Education Foundation fills in the gaps of what’s not covered by the education system or social services to ensure that every child is equipped for success. Donate today!

Toonie Tuesday - February 27, 2018 - A small investment with big change
For a child who lives in poverty in our city, $2 is the difference between nothing and something. It’s food on a plate or a notebook on a desk. It’s half the cost of a field trip to the museum: a price that seems low to most of us, but a barrier for so many in our community.

On the last Tuesday in February, students at participating schools are asked to bring $2 to help other kids just like them. All the funds raised from this day go directly to the Students in Crisis Emergency Fund. In 2017, 101 schools raised over $40,000.
