Yarmouth Vanguard associate editor Tina Comeau and newsroom student intern Carly Churchill – a student of the YCMHS co-op program – visited Meadowfields School on Dec. 17 for the elementary school's annual Santa Shop.
The event is a fundraiser that raises money for school activities. The school also supports a needy family at Christmas time and funds from the Santa Shop support this as well.
Students get to shop and purchase gifts from items that have been donated to the school by student families, school staff and community residents. School staff and volunteers gift wrap the gifts for the students.
There are other schools in the area that hold a similar event.
