Listening to Emma ..
We met a most remarkable, twelve year-old on Saturday. Emma is a student at Kickemuit Middle School. For her CCD Project, she collected enough things for us to be able to help several dozen kids who don’t have the basic things they need. We asked her why? What this amazing twelve year-old told us, inspires us to do more and be better!
“My grandfather is a long time high school coach and every season he has had his sports teams spend time volunteering at the GiftsToGive facility. Over the years the teams have also conducted book, toy, clothing and new sock drives.
For my St. Mary’s (Warren, RI) CCD Community Service Project, I decided to do something for the organization that my grandfather and his teams have served. So I collected gently used books, toys and puzzles to donate to this great cause. I enjoyed doing the project and meeting some of the staff and volunteers.”
