Fifth Graders at Grant’s Lick Elementary host a Cozy Items Drive to benefit Family Promise of NKY

Fifth graders at Grant’s Lick Elementary wrote letters of opinion on their cause of choice and why it should be the organization we support this year. Students voted on the best letter and that student’s choice became our cause. Students held a “cozy items” drive to benefit families experiencing homelessness who were receiving assistance from Family Promise. Students created flyers and announcements to invite their fellow students to contribute.

Students spent time researching issues of homelessness and had a Q and A session with the Director of Family Promise when they went to deliver the over 300 blankets and pairs of socks they collected.
