Students get a taste for helping others during “Appetite for Awareness” event

Trent Hills Independent

By Sue Dickens

Appetite for Awareness

The Grade 6 class at Hillcrest Public School got a taste of what helping others is all about at the sixth annual “Appetite for Awareness” event hosted by Community Living Campbellford/Brighton.

Twenty-three students packed a total of 325 lunches which were purchased by local businesses and other students.

“I think it’s important because there are a lot of kids out there that like, need lunches and need help and I’m doing it just to help people,” said student Nicholas Alstrup. This was the first time he had participated in the event.

Austin Billen, a classmate, was also there for the first time.

“There are a lot of people out there, like Nicholas said, who need help and they deserve help,” he commented.

Angela Clarke, quality assurance and planning liaison with Community Living spoke to the students about why they were there.

“So what we’re doing today is a fund raiser … we sell the lunches for $6 and then that money goes into our outcome sponsorship fund,” she explained.

“The fund is used by people that we support who might not have the money to do things they would like to do,” she added.

“We use the money to help these people obtain their dreams.”

The event was also about creating awareness about Community Living.

“It’s important for local businesses to know that we’re here and what we’re offering as a way of supporting our community,” Clarke said.

“Lots of families who are looking for support for their loved ones don’t know about Community Living and in some cases don’t know how to access our support so just getting our name out there is one way for people to know that we’re here and know what we can do to help,” she said.

“And the importance of having all these kids involved is our way of reaching out to 23 young people who might not have known we were here before and hopefully instilling

in them the importance of supporting people and hopefully some of these people will work with us some day,” she added.

After the lunches had been assembled and put into brown paper bags by the students they were delivered to the people who had ordered them in the Warkworth community, the Brighton community and Campbellford. “This wouldn’t have been possible without the donations from local businesses,” said Clarke.

“I want to thank Empire Cheese, Sharpe’s Food Market, Mike and Lori’s No Frills in Brighton, Fisher’s No Frills in Campbellford, World’s Finest Chocolate and Dooher’s Bakery,” she added.

As a side note, the students held a yard sale the weekend prior to the “Appetite for Awareness” event. Some of the items that had been donated went to Community Living and are being used to help someone they support who is in the process of setting up an apartment where they will live.
