Students Write for ShelterBox

And Prime Minister Trudeau Responds!

Thank you Ormiston Public School

ShelterBox Canada is honoured to have the support of students and staff at Ormiston Public School in Whitby, Ontario

Staff at Ormiston reached out to ShelterBox Canada regarding grade 3/4 students taking part in a persuasive writing class.

Their goal was to write letters to local businesses and encourage them to donate to support ShelterBox’s humanitarian work around the world.

Prime Minister Trudeau Responds

At ShelterBox Canada, we are grateful to have the support from fellow Canadians who believe no family should be left without shelter after disaster and conflict.

We are especially thrilled to see such encouraging words and action from grade 3/4 students and we are not the only ones!

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was also moved by their belief that one person’s words can make a big difference.

Watch Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s reaction as Whitby MP, Celina Caesar-Chavannes, brings the student’s letters to Parliment.
