Heart-filled Donations

Heart-filled Donations
Nassakeag Elementary School first-grade classes partnered with sixth-graders in Judy Larsen’s class to create nearly 90 valentine boxes for those serviced by the Interfaith Nutrition Network.

For the initiative, the students gathered shoeboxes and earned monetary donations by completing chores at home. The funds were then used to purchase various sundries for both adults and children assisted by the INN. The Nassakeag students decorated and filled the shoeboxes with those items, preparing them for delivery right before the holiday.

This effort has been coordinated by Ms. Larsen and first-grade teacher Joan Sperry for the past several years.
