Making Sure New Homes are in Ship SHOP Shape!
As part of this year’s focus on Tikkun Olam, Repairing the World, grade 7 has been learning about hunger and homelessness. Each student had the opportunity to choose where they wanted to volunteer. The first choice was to go to Hearth, an organization to end elder homelessness. At Hearth they would provide a meal and eat with the residents. The second choice was to shop at Bed, Bath and Beyond to buy products for women from The Women’s Lunch Place, a shelter serving homeless women in the Greater Boston Area who have received housing. The students in the photos below chose to to to Bed, Bath and Beyond. They purchased necessities that the women will need to set up their new homes such as kitchenware, bedding, cleaners, utensils, towels and clocks.
