SCHOOL-WIDE ACT OF KINDNESS
Marmaduke Elementary has chosen a School-Wide Act of Kindness that we would like you to help us with. Many of our students and faculty have been impacted by cancer at some point in our lives. We are collecting items that will be used to create care packages for those that are going through chemotherapy. These care packages will help provide three avenues of relief: Comfort, Side Effects and Activity. The Comfort component could be anything from soft socks, blankets or a stuffed animal. The Side Effect component would be items such as chapstick, tissues, lotions, mints, candy, etc. The final component of Activity would help keep them busy such as coloring books, word puzzles, journals, etc.
We have attached a detailed list of possible items that could be donated for our project. The only request is that the donated items be brand new since “used” items are not safe for cancer patients.
This mission is very close to our hearts and we would love for you to be a part of it. Please help us bring our students together to help those courageous people who are fighting for their lives each day. They don’t give up and we won’t give up on them. If you have any questions, please let me know.
