Grade 1 students and their families have been leading the Lower School in collecting blankets, cuddly animals, books, and other supplies for the nonprofit, Project Night Night.
Project Night Night donates over 25,000 Night Night Packages each year to homeless children 12 and under who need our childhood essentials to have a concrete and predictable source of security and an increased exposure to high-quality literacy materials during their time of upheaval. Each Night Night Package contains a new security blanket, an age- appropriate children’s book, and a stuffed animal — all nestled inside of a new canvas tote bag. By providing objects of reliable comfort, Project Night Night reduces trauma and advances the emotional and cognitive well-being of the children we serve.
Hamlin parent, Amy Morgan shares:
We have a class of thoughtful, caring girls that feel passionate about helping others. We thought this was a great way to come together as a first grade class to build community and help the community!
Donated items were sorted last Friday and will be put in bags for delivery on March 15.
Special thanks to Hamlin parents Dalynn May and Amy Morgan for leading this altruistic work!
