Flood Relief Donation Drive for the Siksika Nation

0%100%

On Tuesday June 25th, we were planning to hold a ‘Carnival for the Cause’ event to support a number of important causes and non-profit organizations. However in light of the school closures, parent volunteers and Prince of Wales staff are holding a drive for our neighbouring community of Siksika First Nations, who have been affected by the Calgary flooding of last week.
Please drop off donations to the gymnasium. See project details for what items are badly needed.

  • Full Project Summary

    There will be a team of teachers and parents accepting your donations at Prince of Wales School from 8:00 AM until 3:00 PM.  Please bring your donations to the gymnasium where they will be sorted and/or loaded directly into a trailer headed to the residents of the Siksika Nation.

    In conversation with the Siksika First Nations community, they indicated that they are accepting donations for their residents with an emphasis on a few items that are desperately needed.

    They DO NEED: canned food items, diapers, personal care items (toothbrushes/toothpaste, soap, towels, combs, brushes, shampoo), blankets, socks and pet food.

    Please DO NOT SEND: used clothing, used toys and any household items as the residents do not have homes to put them in yet.

  • Project Outcome

    We will be helping the Siksika First Nations with food, blankets and personal care needs in their time of crisis.

  • How to create projects

    Only a school site admin can set up new projects. Ask you teacher to get help in setting up a project page. Once set up you can write blog articles to support your project. 

    New Projects can be of many types: an event, a take action project, a study, or a Trickster Residency.

  • What is Trickster Theatre

    Trickster Theatre hosts weeklong residencies in Alberta schools. We help create an original show with up to 500 actors - on any theme. We provide the lights, curtains, sounds, costumes, and more! 

    Fore more information, please visit the Trickster Theatre website.
