Roberts Elementary School Projects
Coin Drive for Homeless Veterans
Arzel organized a coin drive so that he could donate money to Homeless Veterans. He picked the Boston Rescue Mission because they have a large number of Veterans who seek support at their center. Arzel made a flier for the students and gave each teacher a collection jar. Arzel collected coins for a full week and then visited each classroom to collect their coins. The coins were brought to Coinstar and then the money raised was donated to Boston Rescue Mission. The shelter's mission is to bring food to the hungry, shelter to the homeless, and provide life-transforming services to those in need.
Donations for Animal Rescue League of Boston
Students in this group were very passionate about animals! They researched shelters in Boston and found the Animal Rescue League. They decided to create two raffle baskets- one for cats and one for dogs. The groups created a flier, collected raffle money from the community, and also set up a table on the playground. They donated the raffle money to The Animal Rescue League of Boston to help support the animals at the shelter.
Cards for Tufts Medical Center Nurses
Students John and Matthew Demeo worked together to encourage others to “Thank a Nurse” by creating cards for the nurses at Tufts Medical Center. The CCSR group also decided to make cards for the Nurses at the Roberts Elementary School too. The students wanted to honor nurses who have worked so hard to keep the community safe during COVID. They worked hard to create flyers to send out to the Robert Community. They also set up a collection bin in the lobby at the Roberts Elementary School and checked on it daily! They collected cards for a whole week and then delivered them to the Nurses at the Tufts Medical Center.
Bake Sale for St. Jude’s Hospital
The students organized a Bake Sale so they could donate money to St. Judes Hospital. The students were very passionate about helping sick children. They created a flier to inform the community and hung it around the school. The students baked cupcakes, cookies, brownies, muffins, cake pops, and more! They held their Bake Sale on the playground at Roberts Elementary School and sold lots of goodies!
