With a theme of “Uniting Kids With Community,” Maple Avenue Elementary School fifth-graders have taken on three community service projects as part of their Project Bridge Program.
The school guidance counselor and fifth grade teachers supported the students in their first project recently as they conducted a food drive that culminated Nov. 10. Students advertised the campaign and collected and counted all items. The school raised more than 2,200 food items that will be donated to the Sussex Food Pantry for the holiday season.
“We are extremely proud that they were able to work together in order to achieve so much success,” said Maple Avenue guidance counselor Colleen Casper.
