One of the preschools on the Island is getting in the holiday spirit, putting together “blessings baskets” for Thanksgiving for those in need and working with the Humane Society to run a drive for supplies.
Emmanuel Day School Director Claudia Allard said that the school has “EDS Cares Week” twice a year.
“The students learned that there are many families that don’t have warm homes and don’t have as much food as they do,” she said.
With the help of student Emily Sharpe’s mom, Jill, the school found organizations that don’t receive many donations — even at this time of year — and brought them 100 lunches and baskets filled with Thanksgiving dinners.
“The students and families loved making and giving the lunches and dinners and will do it again this winter and then again in the spring,” Allard said, noting that the students exclaimed “sharing is fun!” at the end of the day.
