Merchants have heart

I recently started a fundraiser to sponsor three low-income grads with their prom.

I recently started a fundraiser to sponsor three low-income grads with their prom.

I approached Abbotsford Collegiate, and they supplied me with the names of the grads in need.

I am pleased to say Abbotsford merchants have a heart. With support from family and friends, fundraising with hotdog sales, garage sales and burger-and-beer nights, we raised enough to purchase the dresses and suits and cover the grad fees for six local students.

Abbotsford businesses supplied donations of money, door prizes and local services. All dresses and suits were purchased locally.

Hopefully, we can continue this fundraiser in the future. Each grad has personally thanked me, and told me how this experience has brightened their lives and their futures.

Thank you again for your support.
