In hopes of spreading Holiday spirit, the Benway School is celebrating “12 Days of Giving” in which students and staff members are giving back to the local community. So far, Benway students have volunteered time at the Foundation for the Handicapped and the CUMAC food pantry, wrote Holiday letters to veterans and children at St. Jude's Hospital, donated money to Susan G. Komen, held a sock drive to donate to those in need during the winter, and went caroling at senior living centers. Staff members also donated gifts that Benway Student Council Members wrapped, after students made purchases with their behavior points at the Benway Boutique. Today will conclude with the 12th Day of Giving as Benway Student Council members will hand out stockings filled with treats throughout the school, and read stories to the elementary classes. All of this in an effort to promote giving back to others and a sense of compassion during the Holidays. The students' generosity did not go unnoticed, as their story made it on NorthJersey.com, which can be found in the link above. Benway students have mentioned feeling like a family and wanting to help those in need during the 12 Days of Giving, which will look to become an annual event at Benway School!
