The Week of November 18-22

Helping the Less Fortunate

Hosted by Mrs. Grobe and Mrs. Martellaro’s Classes

Idea generated by Neela Sardeshpande

The Samaritan Inn offers homeless people shelter, but makes them promise that they will do something to be on their own again. As of Nov. 5th there are 159 people of which 61 are children receiving services from this great organization.


How can we help?

Grab a trash bag fill it with some of these goods and we’ll deliver the bags to The Samaritan Inn of McKinney. Bring your bags to Mrs. Grobe’s classroom, by November 22nd!
