Paradise Junior High

Mrs. Stevens' Service Learning Class Project

Partnering with CASA

We are collecting as a class of 7th-grade students, lightly used or new:  Pillows, pillowcases, and blankets for the homeless and foster care children as a service-learning project.

They can be dropped off in the foyer or Coach Stevens Class Room #8 at the Junior High. 

We are partnering with CASA to deliver these to those in need during the cold winter months.

Donations can be dropped off any day through December 19 (Thursday).

We will also be making fleece blankets in class to be donated along with a letter of hope to those who will receive them.

Thank you so much,

Coach Stevens
