ST. THOMAS MORE SCHOOL
St. Thomas More School students have been assuring that patrons of the overnight warming center at the Allentown YMCA get an evening snack to tide them over until morning.
The students’ families have been providing protein bars, crackers, applesauce containers and other provisions for the students to place in decorated paper bags for distribution at the center which provides shelter and beds during the winter nights for those who have no other place to stay.
Students throughout all the grades decorate the bags with caring messages and positive thoughts.
Each grade has a time during the week when they help put the snacks into bags for pickup on Friday afternoons by warming station director Robin Reynolds.
The charitable student efforts are coordinated by St, Thomas More School counselor Laura Michaelis.
