Garwood Education Assoc.
Establishes Lincoln Locker
GARWOOD – The members of the
Garwood EducationAssociation (GEA)
have been quite busy since the start of
the new school year. The 37 members
of the organization have organized and
participated in several community-service projects.
During the busy holiday season, association members organized a the collection of unwrapped toys from fellow
staff members, parents, and students
for Toys for Tots to be distributed to
children in need. Likewise the members personally donated supplies for
the PTA Winterfest, an evening at school
where Garwood’s children created crafts
with their families.
In February, in conjunction with the
Lincoln School Student Council, over
250 pairs of jeans were collected for the
national campaign called Teens for
Jeans. Gently used jeans were collected
throughout the month and were then
dropped at a local Aéropostale store.
Stores will deliver the jeans to a nearby
charity or homeless shelter for teens
and children in need. GEA members
kickstarted the drive with a donation of
68 pairs of jeans.
Currently, association members are
in the process of collecting supplies to
establish a Lincoln Locker. The “locker”
is an on-going project that will contain
supplies to be used by students of the
school community. The association has
recognized that there are students that
may not have the means to purchase
their own school supplies. The locker
would be available to them to help keep
them motivated and prepared for school.
Whether teaching in the classroom
or participating in community activities the members of the Garwood EducationAssociation always have the children and the community in the forefront
of their minds and hearts.
