MGMS Serves FIRST RESPONDERS

The CREW lessons scheduled for last week centered around the history of 9/11 and how we can honor our local first responders. As a leadership group, we decided to continue with these lessons as the timing of it will be a very authentic way to show our students how important first responders are to us and that we appreciate them.


As a component of these lessons and with the help of some first responders, we have compiled a list of useful supplies for the first responders in our community. This will be one of our service projects for this year to give back to the people that are so helpful during a time of crisis.


Click the supply list to see the suggested items. Please note that your contribution is not limited to the items on this list. This list is simply suggestions that will help first responders complete their jobs to the best of their ability. If you and your student can contribute have your student bring the items in to his/her CREW leader. We will be in CREW everyday the rest of this week as well as next week. These items will be distributed to 12 different local first responder groups in our community including law enforcement, EMTs/paramedics, and fire fighters.
