DEPEW — Students at Our Lady of the Blessed Sacrament School learned lessons about the spirit of giving, production, economics and sales. Each class was given $25 and challenged to use that money to create something that could be sold to make money for a charity chosen by the class.
The project culminated in a Christmas Bazaar held at neighboring St. Martha Church.
In the end, the students raised over $1,500 for various charities including the Niagara Falls Aquarium, the SPCA, Nicaraguan and Ugandan missions, hurricane relief and UB HEALS, a street medicine outreach initiative of the Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences at the University at Buffalo.
