Be the Change YOU Wish to See in the World
Monday, November 30th, 2020—This time of year many are finding ways to give back to their community and to help those in need. For a recent assignment, Mrs. Nickless’ ELA class were tasked with coming up with a way on how they could ‘Be the Change YOU wish to see in the World. Seventh grade student Elijah Newsome decided to take this assignment one step further and implement his ideas into action.
For his project, Elijah Newsome created care packages for the homeless. Each care package was carefully hand selected and purchased with his own money! Each care package included the following items: face masks, hats, mittens, socks, hand warmers, Gatorade, cough drops, hand sanitizer and more. Words cannot describe how proud we are of Elijah and all that he has done to help those in need and to serve the greater Syracuse community. It’s students like Elijah that help make this world go round.
The Newsome family regularly gives back to the community through volunteering at the food pantry and making care packages such as these to help those who need it most.
