Mme McGraw's Grade 5 French Immersion students from Fredericton’s Garden Creek School joined together with business partner Heather Wilson of Wilson Insurance to blend their unique talents and entrepreneurial enthusiasm. Together they designed, developed and sold "Creeker Cookbooks for Hope". After exploring ten possible charities to support, the students came to a consensus that their project would act as a fundraiser for the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation – Atlantic Region. On the last day of school they presented Barbara Thompson, from the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation – Atlantic Region’s board of directors, with a donation for $2,624.62.

The students developed this project through the Learning Partnership program. The Learning Partnership program, organized by Eric Estabrooks, is a national program sponsored by BMO to engage students in entrepreneurial experiential learning and giving back to their community.
