Students Bundle Clothing for Children in Need

This past week, over 60 middle-school students spent their first recess each day volunteering to help children in need of shoes and clothing through Cradles to Crayons.
Sorting the children’s clothing that remained after the SHS Fair’s Clothesline, students created outfit packs. Each outfit pack provides a child one week’s worth of clothing in a specific size. “We have a list of what different-aged children need,” said sixth-grader Will Croom. “Then we collect the items from the supply tables and make an outfit pack for a child.”

To plan the project, the student representatives on the Service Committee of Student Board worked with parent volunteers, the Middle School Service Learning Coordinator Patrick Farmer, and the Cradles to Crayons Community Engagement Coordinator Chris Bavaro. They invited Mr. Bavaro to campus to introduce Cradles to Crayons to the entire Middle School at Morning Meeting. They also organized volunteers from each grade to make the outfit packets during recess. This past week, students put together 140 outfit packs, bundled 90 pairs of shoes, and bagged 425 items of summer clothing. It has been a very productive week of service learning!
