From the 5th Grade Kindness Committee

Coat Drive


The Kindness Committee of the Fifth Grade Student Council is taking on TWO fundraisers this holiday season. The first — a school-wide effort — will kick off on Wednesday and supports the nonprofit organization, Cradles to Crayons. This organization provides much-needed support for poverty stricken Massachusetts children up to age 12. The organization accepts donations of new or nearly new clothing (including coats, boots, etc.); toys, games, and stuffed animals; and, school supplies (including backpacks). You can also send coins or dollar bills to contribute to the coin drive students have set up.

Please talk with your child about this fundraiser. It is a wonderful way to involve kids in giving to those in need.

I will also keep you informed about the Student Council’s second fundraiser for People Helping People. This fundraiser is specific to fifth grade.

Thanks for your support.



  1. Hi!

    I love to find stories of students helping in their community! It is so important to contribute and give to those in need.

    A class in Thunder Bay is connecting with people all over the world who are showing kindness. Take a look at with @chereandpete.
    Your fundraiser is such a wonderful idea!

    I hope your Kindness Committee keeps up the great work! Merry Christmas!
