On October 6, we had eight eighth graders deliver over 475 toiletry and personal care items to our neighbors at New England Pediatric Care in North Billerica. The items were donated by the teens and families in our Navigator (Grade 6-7-8) Religious Education and Home Study programs.
One parent commented that it helps them (the teens) realize how lucky they are and to not to take everything for granted.
New England Pediatric Care is a long term care facility for children and young adults. Those who delivered the items were treated to a great tour and a chance to meet a few of the residents. The staff was overwhelmed by the generosity of the our teens.
