December First Friday Kindness Baskets

For December’s First Friday project, we will be spreading some kindness to public servants with Kindness Baskets. Each grade will collect a designated item and decide on a recipient for a basket (like a fire department or a hospital unit), then a team of faculty and students will put together the baskets to be delivered.
Students can bring in the following items to homerooms from Nov. 29 – Dec. 7:
Nursery & Pre-K: Holiday Candy
Kindergarten: Hard candy or $1 lottery tickets
Grades 1 & 2: Hot beverages (hot chocolate packets, tea bags, etc.)
Grades 3 & 4: Personal care items (lip balm, travel size hand lotion, pocket tissues, etc.)
Grade 5: Holiday disposable beverage cups
Grade 6: Salty snacks
Grade 7 & 8: Cold beverages (small bottled water, soda, iced tea, etc.)
Please keep in mind that all basket items should be individually packaged. Contact Tiffney Brockway (tbrockway@w-e-s.org) or Kristen Pitts (kpitts@w-e-s.org) with questions, or if you can help deliver baskets. Thank you for helping us show some love to those who work so hard to care for our communities!
