Sachem School District
Students in Patricia Puls’ art classes at Hiawatha Elementary School in the Sachem Central School District made meals a little brighter for some New York City residents. Students used class time to create cards to accompany the meal trays delivered to homebound residents as part of the Meals on Wheels program. Meals on Wheels delivers meals to seniors’ homes to support independence, while fighting hunger and isolation.
Students created “Thinking of You,” “Get Well Soon,” birthday and holiday cards to be delivered. They were enthusiastic about participating and were happy to send joyful messages to others.
