“Never underestimate the difference YOU can make in the lives of others. Step forward, reach out and help. This week reach to someone that might need a lift.”
― Pablo Valle
We want to send a big shout out to the students, families, and staff at Malletts Bay School. In March, they collected 248.5 pounds of food for the Colchester Food Shelf as part of their “Lucky Day Carnival”! In the fall, Malletts Bay School collected an additional 250 pounds of food donations as part of their “Monster Mash” event. In the two events, they donated a combined 498.5 pounds of food for the food shelf. Way to go @mbsosprey! #WeAreColchester #HelpingTheCommunity #MakeADifference
