The time for giving! Red Oak Montessori School once again partnered with the Community Action Program Belknap-Merrimack Counties, Inc to provide blankets and pajamas to our community. November 23rd – December 9th children collected coins by doing extra chores, asking family members and neighbors to donate to Red Oak Act of Kindness Coin Collection and even by searching couch cushions!
Once the coins were collected we started our field trip day at FSB, Franklin branch, to add up our coins, a donation from The Country Braid House (Jan and Wayne Jurta, Tilton) and a donation from “The Smile Squad” of FSB. With money in hand we traveled to Walmart where the children selected and bought blankets and pajama’s. The collection was presented to Gail Lyman, CAP that week.
The children were extremely proud of their efforts to make local families warm for the holidays!
