As part of their community service initiative, fifth graders at Summit’s Jefferson School organized a project to benefit the Bridges Outreach program, which assists the homeless. Partnering with the fourth graders, a solicitation for donations was made throughout the school, and the students collected the items necessary to fill 80 bag lunches and accompanying toiletry kits. The fourth and fifth graders packed the lunches and other items on February 12, and in the spirit of Valentine’s Day, decorated the lunch bags and included a note of encouragement to the recipients. “From the energy the students put into this project, it was obvious that they were excited to be part of this effort,” said elementary school counselor Tom DeMuro, who assisted the students in coordinating the project. Fourth grade teachers Will Hannis and Judy O’Donnell and fifth grade teachers Doreen Statt and Jeff Fluharty also provided their support to the effort.
