JMA youngsters prove that Kindness Service Projects go a long ways
Photos and information from the school
Fifth graders at John Milledge Academy have been paying it forward and helping out where they can, all part of a Kindness Service Project initiative at the school. Here's a look:
"Fifth graders Aubrey and Bailey Garlock completed their Kindness Service Projects by honoring some of our first responders. Bailey chose the police department to thank them for all they do as they always keep us safe. She made cards that said 'Thank you for the important role that you play in our community!' With the cards, she included tootsie rolls as a snack for them to have in their cars while they are patrolling since they work hard. Aubrey chose the fire department because she said they are risking their lives for our community, and they deserve to be recognized for everything that they do. To thank them, she made cards for each of the firefighters saying 'Have we told you recentlyhow much we appreciate you? Thank you for all you do!' She attached a Reese’s peanut butter cup to the card."
