Students at a local high school are raising money to help out Syrian refugees.
The leadership class at Sheldon-William Collegiate started the Welcome Home Project to raise money for the Regina Open Door Society.
Lucas Kuffner is a participant in the Welcome Home Project and says students are excited to help out in the refugees’ transition to Canada.
An Awake-a-thon will be held on February 5 at the school.
They’re hoping to raise 15-thousand dollars.
