The Canyon-Lister Elementary School Grade 5/6 friendship group, with the support of classmates and community, raised approximately $575 in pennies and donations.

These funds have been deposited at the Royal Bank in partnership with the Free the Children organization, for which students raised funds to supply 23 people water for life.

Kalissa Bloodworth, the inspiration behind the fundraiser, has chosen the funds go to Sierra Leone. The students extend their appreciation to everyone that made this possible.
