Last week, we shared our shopping trip to Walmart to pick up school supplies for the Elmer’s Bag It Forward Simple Service Project for Champions for Kids. This week, I was excited to have the opportunity to drop off our donation basket to one of our local schools – Rossiter Elementary School.
As part our donation, we made a basket filled with fun goodies, like Elmer’s glue, Elmer’s 3D Paints, pencils, crayons and markers. I was hoping that one of the kids or one of the classrooms at Rossiter would find a good home for the school supplies.
When I stopped off at Rossiter Elementary school, I met with the principal, Kareen, who told me about their Stuff the Bus program. Every year, all of the local schools come together and gather school supplies for kids who are in need. Rossiter students will be able to “shop” the school supplies during their open house, ensuring that they can kick off the school year with the supplies they need.
I headed to the Rossiter library, which incidentally was way bigger than any elementary school library I went to.
I was excited to see that some of the items they were collecting were already included in my donation basket. Laura, the Stuff the Bus coordinator, admired the gold Elmer’s Glitter Glue and there was a lot of excitement over the big box of pencils and the 3D Elmer’s paint.
I dropped off my basket of school supplies, confident that the Rossiter Elementary School would supply a child in need and thankful for the opportunity to donate to my community as part of the Elmer’s Bag It Forward Simple Service Project.
