First CARe Committee event a HUGE SUCCESS!
On Thursday October 4, 2012 out first early release day, we had our first CARe committee projects including Birthday Wishes and Playground Pride. The children put together approximately 90 goody bags to benefit homeless children. The mission of Birthday Wishes is to provide birthday parties for homeless children. Originally founded in Newton Centre in 2002, as a volunteer organization serving one local shelter, Birthday Wishes now serves more than 165 shelters and transitional living facilities in MA, RI, and Long Island, NY. Lisa. a BW our children were impacted and able to see just how their hard work that day will put lasting smiles on children's faces.
For Playground Pride children cleaned up the trash and litter on the playground. They also made signs to remind children to keep the space clean. CHECK OUT THE SIGNS NEXt TIME YOU ARE OUT AT THE PLAYGROUND.
