Students celebrate 100 days of school making care packages for the homeless
RACINE, Wis. (CBS 58) -- Kindergarteners in Racine were hard at work in the classroom helping those in need on Monday, Feb. 10.
Happy and busy kids filled Gifford School, putting together packages for homeless people in the city, and there was a little numbers lesson hidden in the project.
On the 100th day of the school year, the kindergarteners were asked to collect 100 items.
"Each class had a specific amount of things they had to collect, 100 socks, 100 deodorants and everybody exceeded their goal, so it was pretty awesome," said Teresa Losiniecki, kindergartener teacher.
Gifford School has seven kindergarten classes, so that's 700 items collected!
The care packages will go to Racine's Hospitality Center for the homeless.
