  • Washington Second Graders Share Their Blessings

    Posted by Stevens Point Area Public School District on 12/22/2017

    Mrs. Behnke and Mrs. Freund's Second Grade students at Washington Elementary learned about the joy of giving back and supporting others in our community during this holiday season. 

     

    Students with Blessing Bags

     

    Each year, the class collects items to support a local organization. This year's recipient was the Warming Shelter, one of three shelters in our community.

     

    Krueger tells Students What Happens with Bags when they are at the shelter

     

    Tiffani Krueger and Alycia Skomsvolv visited the students to accept the donations and to share information about the shelter. "Our job as a community is to love and help each other," said Krueger when telling the students what the shelter is like and what a typical day might be like for someone staying in a shelter. "These gifts show people using the shelter that they are cared for." 

     

    Students load bags in boxes to be transported to the shelter.

     

    The class, staff, and volunteers were able to contribute 618 items, filling 51 "Blessing Bags". These bags contain items such as clean socks, toiletries, hand warmers, and a few snacks and are given to individuals when they first arrive at the shelter. With only 12 beds, the shelter has already served 42 people this year, putting them on track to serve almost twice the number of individuals they did last year. "The only way we can do the work we do," said Skokmsvolv," is with help from people like you in our community."
