A high school project for students in the Prairie Land School Division will make life a lot better for some kids in crisis.
Jay Lavallee and Erin Bergman of Delia School have decided to raise money and gifts for the Crisis Nursery at the Children's Cottage in Calgary.
"It's a project across all of PLRD: Grade 10 and up are doing a project on inclusitivity and making a change," explained Lavallee. "We decided that we were going to make somebody's day, so we did a fundraiser."
"We're collecting things like pull-ups, diapers, bottles, unisex newborn clothes, kid's toys and cash donations," she outlined. "We are going to donate them to the Crisis Nursery, which is part of the Children's Cottage."
They are not accepting plush or other stuffed toys because of concerns over allergies and hygiene.
While people in Delia can drop by the school with a donation, they've had to recruit a local car dealer to collect things on their behalf.
"There's a designated drop-off point at Drumheller Chrysler: there's a show truck that we're using, it's called stuff a truck."
That's being handled by sales agent Jamie Worman. The deadline for donations is October 13 at 12:00 p.m.
