Supporting the families of Peruvian migrant workers killed in our community

Three weeks ago, ten migrant workers from Peru were killed in an accident near Kitchener (click here for the Waterloo Region Record story). Last week, our Laurier students celebrated Shrove/Pancake Tuesday by making and selling chapatis (Indian flatbread) and samosas.  The students raised over $150 which has been given to a trust fund set up for the families. Once again, our students have demonstrated that small actions can make a big difference in people's lives.
