The goal of the Schumacher Public School Champions Against Poverty is to make the school a better place. Their first initiative was to create personal care kits for every family in the school. They went to different businesses in Timmins to ask for donations of everyday items like: socks, shampoo, soap, combs/brushes, toothpaste and toothbrushes. The group received so many donations, that they were able to make a sizable donation to Project Love! The school will be creating a room full of clothing, hygiene, toys, books and everyday supplies that students and their families will be able to access, if needed. Donations for this room will be accepted for the remainder of the school year.
