Members of H2O Helping Hands present Cindy Sjoholm of the Bread of Life with a cheque for $524

Youth group lends a hand to Bread of Life

The H2O Helping Hands youth group from Alberni Valley United Church threw a spaghetti dinner to raise money for the soup kitchen.

The Alberni Valley United Youth Group, H2O Helping Hands was formed in September 2012. During the first meeting, the group put together a list of ideas they wanted to accomplish by June 2013.

One of the group’s ideas was to host a spaghetti dinner and raise money for the less fortunate in the Alberni Valley. On March 2, the youth group put their plan to the test and served their first-ever spaghetti fundraiser dinner.

It was great to see how an idea, mixed with a little planning, can make such a difference to a local organization, a group spokesperson said.

By the end of the night the H2O Helping Hand Youth Group raised $524 for The Bread of Life. “It truly is amazing to see what Youth can do with a little support and guidance,” the spokesperson said.
