2014/15 CBL10

  This Year the Student Council of Dalbrae very generously matched the fund raising efforts of the CBL10 class to show support to 2 of our own.
         

2013/14 CBL10

  This was a special year, following a very tragic car accident where we lost 3 Dalbrae students. Students teamed up to help out a survivor of this tragedy that was paralyzed as a result of the crash.

2012/13 CBL10

  The timing of this year's drive had a special ring to it as well as being a double barrel bonus. The CBL class with the help of Dalbrae'e SHOW committee touched two families at a very special time of year.

2010/11 CBL10

This year the CBL class worked to raise money to help man from Whycocmagh who had been waiting for a kidney transplant. Again a car wash, a Mother's Day Basket ticket sale and bake sales helped to make a difference in a family's struggle to deal with this serious condition. These efforts are so well received and such a pleasant surprise tor the people the students touch when they give back to their community.

2009/10 CBL10

This was our first Community Service effort to help someone in our area. The class, mainly through a car wash and Mother's day draw, fundraised to support a young new mom from Mabou battling cancer. Our hearts and prayers go out to them and their family. It was a beautiful gesture that we hope continues every year.
 Students learned that they can make a difference and just how important that difference can be. The financial contribution is one thing, but the thought and support meant so much more to the family.
