Central Elementary School’s Kindness Club just finished its first community service project of the 2019-2020 academic year.
The group voted to help out their four-legged friends at the Marshall County Animal Shelter by collecting supplies such as food, treats, blankets, leashes, toys and money. Kindness Club members were responsible for manning the donation box, promoting the event and making posters.
The Kindness Club was established at Central Elementary School last year by counselor Jenna Dompa. The club is open to any 5th grader and meets once a week during recess time. This year’s membership stands at approximately 30 students.
Club members recently decided on their second project of the year. They chose to make cards for children who are in the hospital. The students’ unique cards were sent to the Cards for Hospitalized Kids (CFHK) program. CFHK is an internationally recognized charitable organization that spreads hope, joy and magic to hospitalized kids across America through uplifting, handmade cards.
Future projects will be chosen by Kindness Club members at upcoming meetings.
