Grade 12 French Immersion students at St. Peter CSS are taking part in a Deep Learning inquiry that has them learning more about the agencies in the community that support people in need.

As a result, the students have decided to collect donations within the school and in the community to support four not-for-profit organizations in the city.

“They recognize the importance of helping those who are less fortunate than they are and they feel strongly about giving back to their community,” teacher Lynne Milette-Carroll said.

The students have chosen to support the Youth Emergency Shelter, the Peterborough Humane Society, Brock Mission and YMCA Crossroads Women’s Shelter by collecting non-perishable food items, toiletries, clothing (regular and winter), cat and dog food, cat litter as well as a variety of other goods to help out.

Students will be collecting donations until Nov. 29 and delivering the goods by Dec. 20.
