Helping the Homeless

A group in Mrs. Borden-Thomas’ class is doing a PBL project based on the homeless. They have decided to create care-packages to give to them, but need some help. They have wrapped and placed a box in the front lobby to help them collect travel-size necessities. We would like the students to bring in the items so they can make care packages for the homeless. When you bring the items in, you can place them in the box to collect.
