On Thursday, November 21, students at Salem Montessori School dropped off the school’s coat donations at Salem Clothes Closet. For the month of October and November, students from both campuses participated by donating gently used coats. The elementary students were able to bring in multiple boxes full of coats to help those in need during the winter months.
The following Monday, November 25, additional elementary students brought in donated food to Southwest Virginia’s branch of Feeding America. During the month of November, students at both campuses brought in food to be donated to Feeding America’s backpack program. The food donated by the students and parents will go towards stocking the backpacks that go home with children on the weekends to help fight childhood hunger.
