The first-grade classes at Taylor Elementary School have collected diapers through individual donations for New Hope Pregnancy Care Center.
The students bundled the diapers into groups so they could be distributed to new parents. First-graders worked hard counting and sorting diapers, making tags for the different sizes and creating handmade cards to be given to new parents.
The students delivered the diapers and cards to New Hope in late March.
After the delivery, the teachers and students were given a tour of the facility. The students have been learning about the importance of helping others in their community.
“This service project was a small way we could work with our hands and serve others,” said their teacher, Karen Allen.
After the tour of New Hope, the students went to enjoy some CiCi's Pizza. First Baptist Church graciously paid for all the students' lunches, and Emmanuel Baptist Church donated money toward the cost of the bus.
“We were given to abundantly as we gave to others,” Allen said.
