Students from 5 Abbotsford schools deliver treats to first responders

Kids thank paramedics, ER staff and firefighters for their service

The Ravens Club at Eugene Reimer middle school and Grade 6 students from four elementary schools delivered more than 250 cake pops to first responders last week as a Random Act of Kindness initiative.

The participating elementary schools were Mt. Lehman, Harry Sayers, Dave Kandal and Blue Jay.

With the help of teachers, parents and administrators from each school, the students delivered cake pops from Starbucks to paramedics, emergency room staff and firefighters.

They purchased the treats through money they had raised, as well as through donations from the Fraser Valley Indo-Canadian Business Association and KS&A Chartered Accountants.

The students also delivered posters with personal messages of gratitude to the first responders to thank them for the tough jobs they take on.

The initiative helps the students understand social responsibility, make connections to the community and create a sense of belonging.

Earlier this year, five Abbotsford middle schools delivered cupcakes to members of the Abbotsford Police Department.
