Mission teens help fellow teens at Christmas

Three different groups raise a total of $2,600 for the Mission Christmas Bureau

The Mission Christmas Bureau’s Mika Brosseau said she has met three amazing groups of teens.

The Grade 7 leadership class from Heritage Middle School, the Northview Youth Church Group and the Grade 9 leadership class from Hatzic Middle School all took part in fundraisers to help the bureau.

“They were so excited to share their fundraising stories and show off all their purchases that they personally made by budgeting and searching through stores from what they thought other teens would like.”

The total amount raised by the three groups was $2,600.

“I am so proud of these kids, “ said Brosseau, adding they should all be very proud as each and every one of them personally made Christmas happen for a number of other teens
