Easton Middle Students Support People in Recovery

Share

Bechora Aguoru and Jonathan Storch created original works of art as part of a service learning project in Mrs. Lauri Bell’s 8th grade Health class.

As part of a service learning project, students in Mrs. Lauri Bell’s 8th grade Health classes chose to donate comfort items to people in recovery or seeking help for drug addiction.  The students assembled and donated 70 care packages to Chesapeake Treatment Services, LLC.  The care packages included basic hygiene items along with inspirational cards to encourage people to continue with treatment.  Two students also made works of art to be displayed at the center.

Although this is not the first time Mrs. Bell has offered this project to her classes, the response this year was remarkable.   “The students amazed me with their enthusiasm and generosity,” said Mrs. Bell.  “We had our highest participation ever in this project!”  Representatives from Chesapeake Treatment Services, LLC paid a visit to Easton Middle School to pick up the care packages.
