Siloam Mission, 300 Princess Street (HANDOUT)

Hastings School will be treated to musical performances by local artists Fresh IE and Sean Quigley thanks to their fundraising efforts.

The St. Vital school raised $1,370 in Siloam Mission’s city-wide fundraising competition to benefit the city’s less fortunate.

“Helping students become compassionate and caring people is the most important thing we can do,” said Jennifer Rempel, a teacher at the school who helped organize the fundraisers. “Our job is to create good citizens of our city, our country and our world.”

The school will host the first annual Youth For Change Day on June 1, with a catered lunch by Danny’s Whole Hog & BBQ provided for 30 people.

Seven different schools raised $5,418 for the Youth For Change competition. Gray Academy came in second place by raising $873, and Greenway School finished third with an $860 donation.
