Thomas Jefferson Elementary School held an event Jan. 27 to benefit sick children and their families who are staying at the Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital located in Valhalla. The hospital provides excellent care for children with all different types and severities of illnesses.
Thomas Jefferson collected items that are needed for the children and their families who are staying at the facilityduring the past few weeks. These items were placed in drop boxes located in the school’s lobby or brought and were brought in on the night of the event.
The event kicked off with a brief welcome and explanation of The Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital’s achievements followed by a sing-along led by teacher Lorraine Cich. Children then broke into small groups in classrooms, supervised by teachers/parents, to make crafts/decorations for the hospital’s walls and bulletin boards.
