Loonies for Lunches

Our school collected loonies to buy the ingredients and make lunch for Habitat for Humanity volunteers for a whole week during their Women Build Event in Auburn Bay.

Loonies for Lunches


We collected loonies to make and bring lunch to Habitat for Humanity volunteers for a whole week during their Women Build event in Auburn Bay. A safe home is very important, so we want to help do our part in making a new home in our community for a family in need.  Help us promote our video ‘Loonies for Lunches’!

  • Full Project Summary

    We launched our Loonies for Lunches fundraiser event at our school assembly on Tuesday, April 23rd and learned from Habitat for Humanity the importance of helping everyone have a safe home to live and grow up in. Habitat for Humanity is planning a Women Build event in our neighbouring community of Auburn Bay the week of May 6th, so McKenzie Town School wanted to get involved!

    It was fantastic to build and bring lunches to these hard-working volunteers! Everyone can make a difference, if we all help out!

  • Information for Educators

    Everyone, no matter how small, can make a difference in the lives of others.  We explored the idea of making a ripple and paying it forward with the kindergarten to grade 4 students in our school.  The curriculum at this grade level explores many aspects of community, belonging and global citizenship.  This project has helped students develope and understanding of what these concepts mean to them and who they are in their community.

  • Project Outcome

    We raised $696.00 to make and bring lunches to Habitat for Humanity volunteers. Students in grades 1-4 each have a day in the week to make and deliver lunches to 160 volunteers who are working very hard on building a duplex for 2 deserving families in our community. The kindergarten students made beautiful thank you cards to put in each lunch basket!

  • 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!
