On February 14, Krista Walker, Nutrition Program Supervisor, and Lynn Smith, Development Manager, reported to the Barrett Russell School in Brockton. The students from this 13 classroom all-kindergarten school presented over 200 hand-made Valentine’s Day cards for OCES to deliver to our Meals on Wheels and Community Dining site consumers.
Because February is also American Heart Health Month, the students held a “dance-a-thon” as part of their healthy living lesson plan. Participants in the event donated $1 each to participate, and the proceeds of their generosity were given to our Nutrition Program.
We thank Principal Joanne Camillo, teacher Alexandra Kay, and all the talented and generous students of the Barrett Russell for this very special Valentine’s Day present to OCES and our consumers.
