Two young ladies from the Cedarville High School EAST program (Education Accelerated by Service and Technology) have come together in response to a need in their community. EAST engages students in service-learning projects using teamwork coupled with cutting-edge technology. First year eighth-grade students, Haley Hurst and Emily Mizell, recently found out that the Cedarville Senior Center was taking donations for local senior shut-ins and decided to take action into their own hands.
The girls are asking that all donations be brought to the principles office at the middle school by Friday, December 13. Items needed are snacks, canned foods, lap blankets, stuffed animals, oatmeal, cereal, toothpaste, denture cleaner, shampoo, and gloves. Any sized donation is more than welcomed to help these EAST students achieve this Christmas blessing for their community. Both girls have said, “The best thing about this project is that we are able to make a difference for the elderly people in our community!”
