Backpacks for homeless people

The Problem

We have all seen many homeless people in the Boston and Cambridge parks around us. We want to put together comforting backpacks filled with essential items such as snacks and warm socks, hats and gloves, as well as toiletries and a kind note of encouragement to let local homeless people know we see them and care.

Our Plan

We will ask our school community to donate the supplies on our list. We will make a master chart to let people see what we have and what we need. The second and third graders will keep up this list, regularly sorting supplies and filling backpacks, maintaining the chart and staying on top of what we have and what we need.
