The WE group at Rimbey Junior/Senior High School is doing its part to raise awareness around access to clean water around the globe.
The group is now selling water bottles (donated by the Evergreen Co-op) within the school and has raised $100 which will provide four people with clean water for life.
“On May 27 WE Group will be carrying water and walking through town to raise awareness around the 840 million people in the world that are living without access to clean drinking water,” said Trish Oloth, school social worker. “Any agency or member that donates will result in one of our students carrying a milk jug filled with water with their name or agency name displayed.”
Uloth said that the WE group can be described as an organization that pushes for global movement and believes that when people come together an even brighter world will be created.
She noted that the WE Group at the Rimbey high school works hard to fundraise and advocate for the WE Organization and what it stands for. Throughout the year the WE group focused on a local and a global initiative.
For its local initiative this year, the group was able to gather 387 pounds of food on Halloween and donate it to the Rimbey Food Bank.
The WE walk for Water is the group’s global initiative.
Anyone who would like to join the students on their walk on May 27 should contact the school.
Rimbey Junior Senior High integrated the WE Group in 2016 in order to push the ME to WE movement throughout the school.
