UNION, NJ – ‘Tis the season and Kawameeh Middle School students showed their spirit in a big way with a fund drive to benefit Children’s Specialized Hospital in Mountainside.
Teachers at Kawameeh used the funds collected to purchased toys from a wish list for the hospital’s playroom. “We had an amazing turnout,” said 6th grade teacher Gina Metta. “Some students even donated their birthday money to help with this cause.”
Kawameeh raised $2,400. The money was used to purchase a variety of toys for the patients at Children’s Specialized, from a Wii Ninentendo to bubbles to games and movies.
On Friday, ten Kawameeh students hand delivered all of the toys to Children’s Specialized. “The students are very proud of what they accomplished,” said Metta. Students were given a tour of the hospital and then dropped off the donated toys.
The students were then treated to a lunch at Johnny Napkins Restaurant, who graciously donated the food and drinks.
