Allen Road Elementary School Students Make Thanksgiving Bags for Rescue Mission

Throughout the month of November, students at Allen Road Elementary School have been involved in a school-wide project for a great cause. Students used some class time to decorate more than 100 brown paper bags, which will now be given to the Rescue Mission. On Thanksgiving morning, the bags will be filled by Rescue Mission volunteers and then delivered by volunteer drivers. The bags are provided to community members in need including homeless, homebound, disabled and elderly who don’t have the money to afford a meal or don’t have family to eat with on the holiday. 

Each package includes a warm thanksgiving meal (turkey, potatoes, veggies, stuffing), a piece of pie, some candy, and nice notes/kind words from project donors. Many students wrote personal messages on the bags and gave special attention to their artwork. Great job Allen Road Elementary School!
