Young mothers at Sir Charles Tupper Secondary School need help and encouragement to get to classes. Moral encouragement is one thing, providing diapers and baby wipes, formula, or modest gift cards so these girls can get something for themselves as their slender resources — mostly federal child allowance benefits — quickly vanish on baby necessities, is another. Our goal is to raise $10,000 for the Tupper’s Building Futures Together Program to help these young moms and their children get a good start.
