Schools provide care kits to Lighthouse
Elementary guidance counselors from each of the 14 elementary schools, along with Florence School District One staff members, recently carried out a service learning project. Each counselor delivered “Care Kits” packed by elementary students to Lighthouse Ministries.
The kits, which will go to families in need, consisted of hats, scarves, canned meats, nutrition bars, and personal items such as soap, wash cloths, deodorant, toothpaste, and toothbrushes. “The goal is to make a difference by contributing to the needs of others, commented Florence One Director of Elementary Education Lorna McBride. “We explain it by simply saying that Florence School District One, Cares!” In total, the elementary schools donated 1,290 items in support of this project.
