On Friday, December 6th, MBS 7th Graders made the holidays a little warmer for preschoolers at The Neighborhood House of Morristown as they donated hats, mittens, gloves, books, and boxes of hot chocolate as part of their “Cozy Kids” service project.
Thank you to all of the 7th Grade families who donated! The items were distributed by students in Mr. Mead’s advisory and members of the 7th Grade leadership group, who helped organize gift bags before assisting the preschool teachers by reading books aloud in class, playing games, and participating in other activities.
MBS participants included: Xavier Arrocha, Margaret Bailey, Molly Baker, Kevin Chen, Brooke Fesq, Colette Gentile, Addison Kelly, Benjamin Luther, Olivia McNamara, Kassy Patino, Nathan Soos, Brooke Tannen, and Avesh Verma. They were accompanied by Middle School teachers Rob Mead and Jennifer Larson.
Throughout the school year, a different MBS 7thGrade advisory visits The Neighborhood House each month. The Neighborhood House is a division of Cornerstone Family Programs (formerly Family Service of Morristown). They strive to build better lives and stronger communities by helping individuals, families, and new immigrants who are confronting economic and other life challenges. Their programs include pre-school, after-school, summer camp, recreation, tutoring, and parenting education programs.
