SUMMIT, NJ - Myriad groups of students, representing several of Summit's Public Schools, made the holidays a bit brighter for those less fortunate as well as their fellow classmates.

A variety of drives and initiatives highlighted their efforts, including:

  • Jefferson Elementary School's Student Council, collected donations of hats, mittens, and scarves which were given to Bridges Outreach, for distribution to the homeless.
  • Franklin Elementary School's Student Council teamed up with Scholastic to bring nighttime comfort to children in need. They collected donations of books and cozy pajamas.
  • Summit High School's Red Cross Club created cards as part of the American Red Cross' "Holiday Mail for Heroes" campaign, sending holiday cards and good wishes to troops and veterans across the country and overseas.
  • Wilson Primary Center, among its efforts, stuffed more than 100 mugs which will be given out by Summit Helping its People (S.H.I.P.), and donated canned goods to a local food drive, 
  • Lincoln-Hubbard Elementary's School String Quarter and its Orchestra Director, Robert Anderson, toured the school, playing holiday music for all the staff and students.
  • Washington Elementary School hosted a school and family sing-a-long, with the gymnasium packed wall-to-wall as everyone sang for over an hour.
