Five students from an Oakville high school are designing and selling custom-made shirts and sweaters to support those affected by COVID-19.
The Halton Unity Project is the creation of Grade 11 student Aiysha Hussain, who along with classmates Selin Yenigun, Kiran Tailor, Mehr Siraj and Ximena Martinez Luebbert from Garth Webb Secondary School, has been producing the clothing since the spring and turning over all funds to Oakville Trafalgar Memorial Hospital to help with COVID patients.
The group says the project was initiated to show gratitude to healthcare workers who have put themselves on the frontlines during the pandemic. They also believe they are helping to unite the community at a time when people are feeling isolated and distanced from each other.
The students credit the school and their teachers for equipping each of them with the individual skills to help them carrying out their endeavour.
