As a school wide effort to host a new refugee family our Jr. Elementary students made a group painting for the walls of their new home.

Thank you Dearcroft Families!!! With all of your support, we have been able to prepare a soft landing for the family from Ethiopia. Elyas & Tayiba have been grateful for everything that has been provided, and are thankful for being here with us in Oakville. Thank you for all of your generosity to make this possible!
One of the team members who helped welcome the family and left us such an amazing comment.
“It’s hard to convey what a world of difference you have made for this family! I was talking to one of your parents, Jen, this morning, and we were both tearing up at the joy you have brought by sharing your love and compassion welcoming these united nation refugees to Canada. Beyond just supplying the household goods, it’s been the organizing to make sure that everything could be brought as needed! And it is a joy to witness how this family is taking to their new lives in Canada. Thank you to All of you who are demonstrating compassion and Modelling peace on earth.”
