“We can’t say enough about these compassionate students and the teachers and parents who mentor them,” says Norm Gould, President of The Manitoba Teachers’ Society. “These kids have beautiful humanitarian hearts and they represent the good in public school students all across Manitoba.”
Grade 7 student Lexi Taylor has been working on two big passions. The École Dugald School student started “A Little Bit of Warm” with some birthday money and an intense desire to help people experiencing homelessness. Lexi makes and distributes bags containing new toques and mitts, hot chocolate and candy canes to help keep people warm. At about the same time, Lexi started volunteering with Got Bannock, an organization that had been making meals twice a month then sharing them with people in the area of Main and Dufferin Avenue. Lexi’s three-year devotion to both of these causes has been nothing short of remarkable.
