Sunflowers for Kenyan Classrooms

Posted by Nancy Russell

The sunflower is often seen as a symbol of strength and hope.  It's perfectly suited to be part of the fundraising effort Callum's Classroom... to build classrooms for students in Kenya. The campaign is named for Callum Russell MacLean  who passed away in April of 2013 at the age of 15, after battling cancer.  His Mom, Nancy Russell, is a friend and colleague of ours here at the CBC.  Matt met with Nancy in early September at Wood's Farms in Tea Hill to find out more about Callum's classroom.

He's heading back along with his daughter and a friend to deliver these donated items in June.
