Students want to say WE Care

Meals on Wheels will be delivering a little something extra prior to Christmas thanks to the Parent Teacher Organization at West Elementary.Nutrition will be accompanied by a Christmas present — goody bags filled with items donated by the students, such as shampoo, soap, deodorant, powder, toothbrushes, mouthwash, socks, lotion, body wash, shaving cream, puzzle books, homemade Christmas cards, etc.PTO president Erin Scott says the project is called “WE Care” which stands for West Elementary Cares.“We are hoping to teach our students the joy of giving, plus bring joy to the recipients of our bags,” said Scott. “For two weeks we have been collecting items, with each student bringing one small item. We also asked them to make Christmas cards so we could put one in each bag.”Volunteering to help collect items were high school Key Club members.“Our original goal was 150 bags for both men and women, but I think we will have closer to 200,” said Scott.
