Sudbury Catholic Students Spread Kindness to Seniors this Mother’s Day
Students at Sudbury Catholic Schools participated in a challenge that was posted by Goshenite Seniors Services to create 500 Mother’s Day cards for seniors in the Sudbury area.
Not being in a physical classroom didn’t stop Mrs. Cimino and her Grade 1 students at St. David School from coming together to help Goshenite Seniors Services.
“It is especially important during these difficult times to provide students with authentic opportunities for them to act as caring and responsible citizens,” said Mrs. Cimino.
Milena Raso, a grade 11 student at Marymount Academy is currently enrolled in the Specialized High Skills Major for Non-Profit Industry. She too jumped at the opportunity to bring positivity to members of our community.
“I am very blessed to have my grandmother living with me and
listening to her stories about not having technology and other modern-day
conveniences. It shows me how life has changed. Hearing it first-hand, rather
than from reading it in a textbook makes it much more real to me. I think it’s
important for youth to be more active in caring for our elders and realize that
we have a lot to learn from them,” she explained.
Cards will be sent directly to Goshenite Seniors Services who will distribute them over the weekend.
