ECC Benefits Weekend on Wheels
At some point in life, a good number of people will find themselves in a position where a helping hand from a family member, friend, neighbor or teacher is needed. Maplewood Richmond Heights School District recognizes community, and the MRH community works together to meet the needs of all of its families.
The District created Weekend on Wheels (WOW) to address the issue of hunger. Each weekend throughout the school year, MRH students and staff pack nutritious food into boxes and deliver to children and families attending MRH schools.
At the Early Childhood Center, families, students and staff were challenged to donate food items to fill the showcase at the front of the school. This showcase is helpful because it shows visitors who walk in to the school, what the program needs, and what they can do to help/donate if they so choose. By the end of September, the challenge was complete. Children were so excited to see the changes over the course of one month.
