Grade 4



A home is more than just shelter, a home should be a safe, loving, supportive place to live.

My home is a safe and secure place. It is a good place to relax and it is very comfortable. In my home I am loved by my family and friends. When my friends and family come over, we make memories. We play, enjoy each others company and laughter happens all over the house. I love being in my home. It is the best place and I never want to leave it. In my home my family takes good care of me. I really like my home and I feel bad for people that don’t have a home.

In 2017, I participated in the Coldest night of the year walk to help raise money and awareness of the Out of the Cold Program in Barrie. I raised $250 to help young people who don’t have a home. I was the youngest person ever to present about the Out of the Cold program when I presented to my grade 2 class at Hewitts creek. I hope to help raise money with this essay to help those who don’t have a safe and secure place to live.
