We collected pounds and pounds of coins for The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. In bills, we had over $300 and Huntington Bank is counting the change for us. So far, Mrs. Sykora's class is in the lead to possibly win an Olive Garden pasta party!
We collected hundreds of non-perishable food items for the Lakewood Charitable Assistance Corporation's Thanksgiving Food Drive...in only three days, which I found amazing! Emerson families are incredibly generous!
We made dozens more cheerful placemats for a community meal here in Lakewood! Ask your students, this is a project we do continuously throughout the year and the coordinator of the meal has been so grateful for the students' efforts. She often sends us the kindest thank you cards which I read to the students so they can see the effect of their membership in Emerson Cares on others.
We created adorable Christmas ornaments for H2O to sell at Light Up Lakewood this Saturday! If you are going to be at LUL, stop by the Twigbee Shop in the Library for affordable Christmas gifts. The money raised will go to the Lakewood Christmas Store. This pop-up shop gives families in need a shopping experience to provide their children with new toys on Christmas morning. Check them out on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/LakewoodChristmasStore/

Thanks for all of your generosity and support,
