Cornerspring Helps Local Soup Kitchen


January 20th, 2011

Each year Cornerspring Montessori School chooses an organization to sponsor as part of its curriculum in teaching students about community giving and service. This type of work weaves into all types of our academic curriculum such as math, language arts, etc. and helps our students learn such skills as committee formation, working in a collaborative fashion and correspondence. This year we will sponsor the Belfast Soup Kitchen as our annual charity.  The students will host a variety of fundraisers for monetary funds in support of the organization, but will begin by asking friends and families to donate to the “Item Drive” beginning January 20th and ending Friday, January 28th.  Depending on our time with other fundraisers for this organization and the success of the “Item Drive”, we may continue past the deadline, but we will let you know.  Below is a list of items the soup kitchen is in need of on an ongoing basis.  Please join us in donating items in support of the Belfast Soup Kitchen.
