This year, YIS students and parents are once again pooling together their money to provide children with holiday gifts at the Kofu Kodomo-en, Kodomo-no-sono and the elderly of Hakujuso Home, and the Yamate Kunmoin Christian School for the Blind. The School for the Blind takes care of about 40 children aged two to twenty, with many of the children suffering multiple disabilities.
We are collecting money in class for these gifts. It is called the Van der Poel Christmas giving, and the children would really like your support. Money will be collected next week, up until Friday.
Please consider donating some money to these charities this year. YIS hosts a Christmas party for the children at the homes, and the elementary student council helps run the event. Thank you!
