Warming Hearts This Winter

Academy Street Elementary School’s Peer Leaders have been working to provide some warmth to those less fortunate this winter by collecting piles of gently used coats from the school’s students, faculty and staff. To drum up excitement for it, the organization’s members created colorful signs and banners that were displayed throughout the school prior to the two-week drive. As a result of the overwhelming contributions made by individuals in the building, the school donated three buckets filled with coats to the local Big Brothers, Big Sisters chapter. Pictured here are several Peer Leaders with their collected donations.
