Food bank recipient of John XXIII’s Who is Nobody exercise

Renfrew County Catholic District School Board - Who Is NOBODY?

The Grade 5 class from John XXIII has recently received the Who Is Nobody? program from The Rotary Club.

The program requires each student to take action in their community by either donating time, money or raising awareness for a cause.
Over the school year Nobody goes from being Nobody, a doll with no character, to Somebody, who has lots of character as a result of students’ actions.

Who Is NOBODY - RCCDSB - John XXIII Catholic SchoolEach student must attach a tangible item to nobody to represent their cause.

The first project was done as a class to kick off this great experience. Students decided to choose the food bank as their community project. Students made posters for awareness and ran a popcorn sale and food drive to collect donations.

In the end, students raised $140 in cash donations and over 400 non-perishable food items.
They attached a food label as a bracelet to Nobody to represent their efforts.

Up next: Nobody is slated to run in Arnprior’s Unity Run and Nobody will be wearing purple for Bullying Awareness Week coming up in November.

Great job Grade 5s!
