In December, Jeffery Primary families gathered together in the spirit of giving for the “Jeffery Gives Back” event.
“Jeffery Gives Back” gave students and families the ability to rotate through stations to complete service projects for various organizations. Through the teachers’, students’ and families’ generosity of their time and talents, the following organizations benefitted from the event.
Students created 12 blankets for Project Linus, which distributes handmade blankets to children who are seriously ill, traumatized, or otherwise in need.
Meals on Wheels
Students created 192 scratch art ornaments for Meals on Wheels to distribute with their meal deliveries.
North Hills Community Outreach
Students created 120 sun catchers for North Hills Community Outreach to distribute to its program participants. Students also created first aid kits for the NHCO to provide to program participants in need.
Students created 120 penguin ornaments for individuals who are staying at Rebecca Residence, a local nursing home facility.
Cards for soldiers
Students created about 100 holiday cards for military personnel to be distributed to personnel stationed in Yokosuka, Japan, on the USS Curtis Wilber, a missile destroyer.
