Nassakeag Donations Warm Hearts

Four classes from Nassakeag Elementary School teamed up this winter to bring smiles to those who visit the Interfaith Nutrition Network by creating more than 100 Valentine’s Day gift boxes.

For the initiative, the students gathered shoeboxes and earned monetary donations by completing chores at home. The funds were 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. 

In addition to the community service aspect of the project, teachers also tied the effort into the social studies curriculum, as they discussed community with regard to wants and needs. 

This effort has been coordinated by Judy Larsen and Joan Sperry for the past several years.
