CHERRYFIELD, ME — We had five Class of 2022 college readiness students from Sumner and Narraguagus high schools assist with the Elves’ Workshop at Weald Bethel on Saturday, December 14th. Heavy rains did not deter their giving hearts! They unloaded and then sorted a van-load of donated toys, assisted families with selecting presents for their children, and selected and wrapped presents to be delivered to other families.
We were so grateful to Christmas Program Manager Marilyn Nickson and her team for welcoming us. Before we left, one of the students asked if we could assist again next year. So I think this may well become an annual tradition in our program.
One note on the student holding the MSM sign. Before assisting, we gathered in the EdGE Center for a bit of holiday cheer and a simple gift exchange. This student drew this MSM sign to give to a fellow student. Wonderful!
