During the month of March, the Middle School Council wanted to find a unique way to give back to the community. Coffee Cares was an initiative started to thank local healthcare heroes. The goal was to collect as many gift cards as possible for various coffee shops (Tim Hortons, Starbucks, etc.) to deliver to the ICU and COVID-19 unit at Southlake Hospital in Newmarket.
To accompany each gift card, Middle School students personalized handwritten notes of thanks as a small token of our appreciation for all that Southlake Regional Health Centre does. We were absolutely thrilled by the outstanding participation of our Middle School community as we were able to deliver over 150 cards to Southlake. Thank you to everyone who contributed! A small act of kindness goes a very long way.
