Under the guidance of Mr. Cassara, Claxton's Art Specialist, the students decorated about 80 bags that were placed at CitiStops around the city for collecting cash and food donations for Meals on Wheels' Santa for Seniors program. The donations will be delivered to nursing homes and assisted living facilities—as will the lovely bags.
In a thank you letter to the students, CitiStop noted that "the bags turned out even better than we could have hoped. We know the seniors will love the bags as much as we did." Between Claxton and one other elementary school, 223 gift bags were delivered to Meals on Wheels clients. As CitiStop said, our students "helped bring joy to many people this holiday season."
Thank you to Mr. Cassara for giving our students the opportunity to do such meaningful giving!
