Volunteers needed to bring holiday cheer to local kids

Extra helping hands are needed to deliver a dose of holiday magic to a Thorold elementary school next month.

Volunteers from Brock University will visit Prince of Wales Public School for the annual Holiday Extravaganza on Wednesday, Dec. 5, spreading seasonal cheer to about 150 kindergarten to Grade 8 students.

Organized by Brock’s Concurrent Education Student Association (CESA), the memorable day will include holiday-themed activities, crafts and special guests, but in order to bring it to fruition, additional volunteers are needed.

Brock students interested in donating their time at the event, which runs from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., can email events@brockconed.com as soon as possible for more information or to register.

“Holiday Extravaganza is a fantastic volunteer opportunity for all Brock students. It is something that everyone should become involved in before they graduate,” said CESA Events Co-ordinator Courtney Kelly. “This event not only provides Brock students with an opportunity to get into the holiday spirit, but also offers an excellent way to give back to the Niagara community.”  

Participation in the Holiday Extravaganza will be tracked on students’ co-curricular transcripts and all volunteers will receive a reference letter from the school’s principal.
