Highland students collecting for clean water

The Highland Secondary Interact Club will collect pennies for this cause at the Comox Valley Christmas Parade this Sunday.

We are one of the fortunate countries that has access to clean water every day.

Now is the time to help developing countries around the world. Imagine the impact of clean water for people in a developing country such as Kenya.

Under Free the Children’s Clean Water Initiative, every $25 dollars worth of pennies provides clean water for one person — for life.

The Highland Secondary Interact Club will collect pennies for this cause at the Comox Valley Christmas Parade this Sunday at 2 p.m.  and after the parade at the petting zoo at the Sid Williams Theatre.

Interact Club members will walk around the crowd after they go through the parade looking for pennies and donations for their Free The Children Clean Water initiative in Kenya. They will have posters and stockings letting you know who they are.

Everyone deserves to have a life — everyone deserves to have clean drinking water. Together, we can make it happen.

Donate your pennies at the Christmas parade and help the Highland Interact Club save lives.
