     Helping Family Time Crisis and Counseling Center

    (Service Learning Project)

    This year Shadow Forest is involving our school community as part of our Be The Change Week. We would like to help the children at the Family Time Crisis and Counseling Center. The center is in need of birthday bags for the children. The Family Time Center uses these bags to have birthday parties for the children while they are residing at the center- many of which have never had a birthday party.

    How can you help?

    We are assigning each grade level birthday items to bring so that we can make complete birthday bags to give to the crisis center. Each bag will contain a pack of birthday candles, a pack of balloons and paper streamers, a cake mix, a container of icing, a package of paper plates, cups and napkins. Later, all of those items will be put into a paper handled bag and tied with ribbon.


    Grade level assignments:

    Kindergarten: packs of birthday candles

    1st grade: packs of balloons and paper streamers

    2nd grade: cake mixes

    3rd grade: icing

    4th grade: paper plates, cups, and napkins- can be boy or girl themed

    5th grade: paper gift bags with handles and curly ribbon
