CPC Service Learning Program Collects 400 Toys and Books for CPC's After School Programs and the Salvation Army
The second part of the CPC Service Learning Initiative's holiday project involved collecting items for our community members. Our Service Learners decided to put together a toy and book drive to collect toys for CPC’s after school programs and the Salvation Army. The group responsible for the toy and book drive first decided to first map out their goals and expectations for the project. Several participants got together to create the flyer for the toy/book drive both in English and Chinese. The flyers were taken by the Service Learners and distributed among their peers and in their schools. To our surprise, Service Learning successfully collected over 400 toys and books to be donated!
Service Learners separated the toys based on gender and gender-neutral toys and appropriate age groups.The presents were delivered to CPC's Chrystie Street School-Age Child Center and CPC's Early Childhood Center at Little Star of Broome Street. All of the children were delighted to see the presents and toys. Toys and books were also donated to the Salvation Army. We would also like to give a special thanks to the Director of Childhood Development Services, Mary Cheng and the Deputy Director of Childhood Development Services Carrie Black for helping us coordinate between the schools for the donations. Lastly a special shout out to CVS Pharmacy and all the staff and community members who donated items!
