With the arrival of Fall, students at Live Oak Elementary are taking on an attitude of gratitude as they work to help others. Third, through sixth grade students of the “Passion Project Club” have started a community-wide endeavor to support Rady’s Children’s Hospital with a specific effort to supply the “Bedtime Carts” that travel the oncology floor hallways to provide a needed moment of comfort for the children and families seeking care.
“Families who need something comforting would pick it from the cart. This cart is full of blankets, socks, chapstick, bandaids, new books, and bedtime snacks like crackers for kids or teas for parents,” said Daylee Ramsay, student and member of the club at Live Oak.
Student clubs like the “Passion Project” are not uncommon in the Fallbrook Union Elementary School District as one of the district’s main focuses is on developing student leaders that take the initiative to help others.
Assistant Principal of Live Oak, Erin Gates was proud to share about these student efforts, “These young leaders are focusing their energies and talents on helping others. Being able to watch these young ladies gain a greater understanding of their ability to make a difference in our world has been extraordinary. I hope that they get to see the donations to support their work.”
If you would like to help, please bring any donations of new blankets, snacks, books, new socks, chapsticks/lotions and Band-Aids to the front office of Live Oak Elementary School by October 31st.
