Collection of toiletries for our Veterans

by Phil Napolitano
May 9, 2018

MIAA hosted its first annual Community Service Showcase on Friday, May 4th. The purpose of this event was to highlight the great student led community service work being done by MIAA student leaders across the state. As part of this showcase, the participants were challenged to collect toiletries in their schools and communities that would be donated to our Veterans in need.

Participating schools: Abington, Advanced Math & Science Academy, Amherst-Pelham, Bristol County Agricultural HS, Burncoat, Chicopee, Chicopee Comp, Durfee, East Boston, Fitchburg, Foxboro, Grafton, Hopkinton, Narragansett, Newton South, Oliver Ames, Quabbin, Somerset Berkley, Sparhawk School, Sturgis Charter East, Tyngsboro, West Springfield, Westfield HS and Westfield Tech

366 full kits were assembled today by 80 MIAA High School Student Leaders with the donations collected from our students in their communities! The kits are headed to the city of Worcester to be distributed at VA hospitals and Veteran homeless shelters. The students came through in a BIG way for our Veterans in need.

Donations were collected from the following:

Holliston Town Hall Collection
Double Tree Hotel in Westborough
Metfit Gym in Natick
MIAA/MSAA Staff
24 participating schools and communities (listed above)

366 full kits were assembled today by 77 MIAA High School Student Leaders with the donations collected! Each kit was accompanied by a hand written thank you note. The care kits are headed to the Vets, Inc shelter on Grove Street in Worcester. The students came through in a BIG way for our Veterans in need.

Philip Napolitano told HollistonReporter.com: “It is impossible to quantify the positive impact the MIAA student leaders have made in the lives of our Veterans and their families who are in need. The lessons learned through community service are invaluable towards the growth of our future leaders.”
