Bedtime Bags


With spring and summer breaks coming soon, the students at South Newton High School, Kentland, completed a great service-learning project to help students Be the Change and meet a critical need for students in the community who experience additional needs during school recesses.  Utilizing the K-12 LTG lesson Bedtime Bags, students discussed the need for helping the economically disadvantaged and worked in small groups to develop a sense of empathy for the underprivileged while learning about current services provided to those individuals and families. Supported by an INSPIRE3 mini-grant, students created Break Bags for impoverished elementary students to take home over Christmas break. Bags included art supplies, reading material, toiletries, and small toys.  Students were in charge of deciding what materials went in the bags based on perceived need and age of recipient. The students filled and distributed the bags.
