They will also discuss good nutrition and help educate our children and parents on nutrition, advise families of avenues they can use when they have no food; shop for the food; supervise and assist with the loading and unloading of food. The children and volunteers will help set up the bags to be used to pack food; they assist the children and parents with sorting and packing the bags of food and distributing the bags of food.

Our students have worked with several organizations to harvest seeds from flowering plants that are native to NYC and are in the process of overwintering and seeding these seeds so they are ready to be transplanted into the garden. We will transplant the native flowering plants in early spring and care for and maintain the garden throughout the spring.

This project will hopefully bring smiles and happiness to the residents of two nursing homes and teach the children about compassion for other people. The children will make Valentine's Day cards on plain white cardstock and add their free hand art work. An inside message will be printed and each child will paste it inside of their handmade card. In addition to the cards, the kindergarten children will make a craft uses recycled cereal boxes by painting multiple random patterns onto the brown side of the box, putting them through a die cutter and making two hearts. The hearts will be turned into one of a kind hanging crafts for each resident. We will make short videos of some of the children expressing what they learned or how the project made them feel.

In our area, when people come to the shelter, they are presented with book bags. The “Go-Go bags” will fit nicely in the book bag even when they have other items in there. My organization will get our volunteers to shop for food and we will pack these bags. We will pick up toiletries from the local doctor offices and insert small pamphlets of words of encouragement. Once they are packed, they will be distributed to the Women and Children’s Homeless Shelter of Mecklenburg County. I once lived in the shelter with my grandmother for a short period and I want to be there to help the women and children as people helped us.

Our project will make a more positive environment. We will pass out treats and smiles to strangers. The reward is seeing them smile. Everyone knows life’s hard but a smile makes you push a little harder or take another go at something a smile can really impact someone’s day.

We are going to create 10 caring bundles for our homeless population in Atlantic City. In a donated blanket, we will be adding socks, gloves, towels, washcloths, shampoo, soap, toothbrushes, toothpaste, food such as granola bars, tuna, fruit, pudding, apple sauce, and water. These bundles will be delivered to our most at risk homeless men and women who will not seek help in the shelters. In addition, we will be making our bi-weekly 200 lunches for the homeless clients of Atlantic City Rescue Mission and our homeless veterans living in transitional housing in Enphront. In addition, we will be making 50 full-course meals for our homeless veterans.
