12/17 (Thu) Kids4Kids West Service Learning Project
Thank you so much for the outpouring of generosity for this project! West students really got to know their buddies during this project, which was also a great conversation starter for empathy and mental health for our families. We were able to contribute more than 500 items towards 1)something they like to do for fun, 2)something they like to do when they are sad & 3)something they look forward to for after Covid for 48 buddies. All the care packages will be delivered tomorrow. ️
