Donations for those in need

Posted by Charmaine Pratt on 11/21/2019 8:40:00 AM

Clairemont spent the month of October focusing on Spreading Kindness. We want to continue this focus on kindness with a final project. We want our students to practice compassion and show kindness to people in our community. Students will have the opportunity practice these ideals by creating care kits for the Decatur Cooperative Ministry. The Decatur Cooperative Ministry helps families that are experiencing homelessness. We are asking families to donate materials for these care kits. Along with the items listed below, we are asking for donations of shoeboxes and small boxes. The shoeboxes and small boxes will be used to create the care kits. Donation items are separated by grade level. We will accept donations from 11/18/19 – 12/6/19. Donations can be placed in the grade level donation boxes in the Clairemont front lobby.
