Be the Change 2018

Support Service Learning at MS 447
For their final Exploration unit, MS 447 8th graders participate in a service learning unit. As a culmination of the many project-based, socially conscious units that students experience during Exploration, students spend the end of their middle school career learning about and giving back to the community outside of our school. Donations made through this NY Charities page will be used to buy supplies to support Be the Change, which works to support people dealing with homelessness and/or food insecurity. 
Service Learning: A teaching and learning strategy that integrates meaningful community service with instruction and reflection to enrich the learning experience, teach civic responsibility, and strengthen communities.

All financial donations will be used to purchase supplies that directly support our work in this unit, including for the following: 

-Buying groceries (bread, lunch meat, snacks) to prepare sack lunches to donate to local soup kitchens/shelters

-Buying supplies to make “cold kits” - containing medicine, tissues, cough drops, chapstick, etc. to donate to local shelters.

-Buying supplies to make “hygiene kits” - containing soap, shampoo, toothpaste, etc. to donate to local shelters.

-Any additional funds will be donated to an organization of students' choice, or to complete an additional project of students' choice. 

Thank you for your support of vulnerable populations in NYC, and for helping our students to build

both their empathy and work ethics through service learning!
