Shelter Box Disaster Relief: It’s never too late to recognize the hard work of students. Back in December students at Crestomere School put in extra effort to raise funds for ShelterBox Disaster Relief. The program aims to provide emergency disaster shelters to those in need around the world. Students, staff and families came together for the program with daily Nickel Wars and after a couple of weeks managed to put together $1,565. That money will provide one ShelterBox ($1,200) and two shelter kits ($150 each). Thanks goes to those who contributed to the Crestomere Christmas Telethon Concert and to the Lacombe Rotary Friday Club.
