World Kindness Week is February 12-18, Rachel’s Challenge will be holding a hat and glove drive for the children at Brightwood Elementary School in Springfield, MA. Brightwood is the third poorest school in the state with a 99.4 percent poverty rate, a majority of the children walk to school so this time of year there is a high need for these items. Please send your donation in with your child from now until February Vacation. We will deliver the gloves and hats to ensure they are available upon the return of vacation. Thank you so much for your support! If you have any questions please feel free to email Mrs. Grant at firstname.lastname@example.org.
