Gr. 4 Student Helps Out The Mission

She may only be in grade 4, but Amherstburg resident Rae Demitroff already knows that you’re never too young to give back to your community.

Rae, who attends Anderdon Public School, decided that what she really wanted for Christmas was to collect food for the needy, So, she took it upon herself to start a food drive.

On December 17th, she went door-to-door in the Beneteau Subdivision in River Canard, joined by her brothers James and Luke, cousins Julia and Aiden Weir, and friend Daphne MacInnes.

Rae and her family had sent out flyers to the neighbourhood the previous week, to let people know they would be asking for donations.

Rae explains that, “I want to help like how people help me, and a food drive is something I can do. It’s paying it forward”. It makes me feel good that I helped other people and I hope they’re happy”.

The Intrepid young girl and her proud helpers brought the boxes and bags of goods collected to the mission.
