This year’s project teamed up with the Service Learning group from Genoa Middle School – students collected items for a week asking each student to bring in at least one items to be sent to the orphanage in the Ukraine. Additionally, sports equipment was also collected to send to a Physical Education program. Students donated $1.00 to wear their favorite hat to school with funds being used to assist with shipping costs – and the Genoa PTSA also contributed. The Westerville South IB program donated first aid kits that were packed up along with items collected from my friends and church family on January 28th – total weight for the items being sent reached 758 pounds! THANKS for all the support to the 2010 project.
