International Day of Peace Celebration, Stuffed Animal Drive for Syrian Refugees & Trick or Treat for UNICEF

  • Location
    Wakefield, Massachusetts
  • Status

The Problem

To raise awareness in our school community about peace and to educate about refugees, especially children, and do two related service projects that engage the whole school - a drive for stuffed animals for Syrian child refugees and then participation as a community in the Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF campaign.

Our Plan

It will do education about Peace for all the children from toddlers up (and even older infants) at the school, and their parents, and then for preschool/preK children and up age appropriate education about refugees will happen over the following month and a half, with a stuffed animal drive happening to allow the students and families at the school to do something to help, and then a speaker from UNICEF telling the children how participating in Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF really makes a difference and as a school we engage in participation in that campaign, collecting the UNICEF boxes on Nov. 1 and 2nd here and making the donation as a school, and then celebrating what we have accomplished.
