Our school collects pennies during February every year and uses that money to support a charity.
This year, it was decided that some of the money would go to help the people of Haiti.
So my grade level partner and I decided to have our students put together health kits to send to Haiti. The students brought in items and we used our penny donations to purchase the rest.
They filled the kits with soap, toothbrushes, washcloths, hand towels, nail files, combs and band-aids.
The kids enjoyed making the kits and were excited to be able to help the people of Haiti.
The kids made 36 health kits. They were dropped off at a local church and will be sent out through another organization.
