Lord Tweedsmuir change drive nets windfall for typhoon victims

Students at Lord Tweedsmuir Secondary held a change drive to raise money

What a windfall! Lord Tweedsmuir Secondary students pose with some of the money raised in their change drive for victims of Typhoon Haiyan.

More than $3,000 in loose change will be headed relief efforts for victims of Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines on Nov. 8, thanks to a change drive spearheaded by the student executive council at Lord Tweedsmuir Secondary.

The students raised $1,738.14, with proceeds going to assist the Canadian Red Cross.

The Canadian government will match donations to registered Canadian charities to Dec. 8, meaning the Tweedsmuir campaign represents $3476.28 for hurricane relief.

Using the slogan, Spare Some Change to Make A Change, students went around the school and the Cloverdale community to collect cash for the cause.
