Students of Cochrane High School are about to make a difference in Attawapiskat for their peers.
The students are preparing what they’re calling ‘Hope Boxes’ which will be sent to grade seven to 12 students in the remote First Nation community. The community and local businesses have raised over $2,000 in donations, which will be akin to the Operation: Christmas Child boxes sent out by students last year. Next week students will be putting the boxes together with Air Creebec offering to take the boxes to Attawapiskat for free.
