Clear Spring students help the homeless

December 18, 2006

The Campus Life Club of Clear Spring Middle School in November began a project to help some homeless families this Christmas, according to a press release from the club.

Club members asked each homeroom at the middle school to donate items to fill two shoe boxes for a homeless person in the area. Each homeroom was given information about two people who needed help. The information included the age and gender of the person. Ages ranged from preschool to adult.

When the project began, club members focused their efforts on homeless children, but the response was so great, they included adults as well, according to the release.

Items included in the boxes were stuffed animals, toys, puzzles, games, books, crayons, gloves, Chapstick, pencils and pens, toothbrushes and toothpaste, deodorant and socks.

Club members also donated items to fill shoe boxes. The boxes were collected and checked at the group's Dec. 7 meeting. The club had a goal of 50 boxes, which was exceeded when 90 boxes were filled, according to the release.

The boxes were distributed at shelters daily, according to the release.
