Harwood students support families in need through candy cane gram fundraiser

Sweet success

Who knew a few candy canes could bring so much joy?

The Harwood Elementary School Leadership group sold the popular holiday treat as a Christmas “Candy-Cane-Gram” fundraiser, bringing in $300 for Vernon’s financially burdened families. The student used the cash to purchase $50 gift certificates from the Superstore, which they distributed to families in need of some assistance to get through the holiday season.
