Decatur IL – Some local kids are learning
early how to help those in need.
Students in 4th and 2nd grade at Muffley
Elementary School in Decatur have teamed up with the American Red
Cross. They are learning safety, as well as collecting money to help get kids
in Africa immunizations.
Today the Red Cross used the recent
Hurricane to show kids the importance of being prepared. 2nd grade teacher
Tressa James expressed how this is the perfect time to learn those values "The students in 2nd and 4th
grade are very sympathetic with what's going on around them. When the study
about it helps them feel like they're a part of what is going on in our country
and to feel that they could be a part of making a difference as well."
Today was just a small part of the partnership. The
students will help with a local blood drive later this year.
