School district board chair thanks Osoyoos seniors for organizing successful pyjama drive
This letter is sent to thank Connie Osachoff and all the members from the Osoyoos Seniors Centre.
On behalf of School District 53, I would like to thank all of you for your hard work and the wonderful idea to bring joy into the lives of our local children through your recent pyjama drive.
You have contributed 120 pairs of pyjamas to children in our elementary schools, daycares and also to the safe house. The bulk of the pyjamas went to Osoyoos Elementary School and to the daycare centre in Osoyoos.
Through your hard work, so many pairs were donated that we decided to also share with some of our other schools in the district.
Some ended up going to children who attend Tuc-el-Nuit Elementary, Cawston Primary and also to the daycare centres in the communities of Oliver and Cawston. We also donated some to the safe house in Oliver.
Thank you again for your hard work and for thinking of our local children when you decided on this project for this Christmas.
Many children will wake up over the holidays in brand new pyjamas.
