My name is Skylar Ferguson and I’m in grade 11 at Oak Park High School. In May 2017 Churchill, Manitoba experienced a catastrophic flood that wiped out its rail line in 19 places. The lack of rail line left the Churchill residents without ground transportation in and out of their remote northern community.

I want the children of Churchill, Manitoba to have a special Christmas and to know that Manitobans care about their situation.   Christmas for Churchill is a toy, food and monetary drive. We need to fill Santa’s sleigh that is headed to Churchill. Let’s show how much Manitobans care!!
