Elsberry students reach out to community elderly as they assist ‘Meals on Wheels’ program

Posted on Tuesday, November 6, 2012 at 3:09 pm

This will be the fourth project by Mrs. Amanda Niffen’s third grade class at Clarence Cannon Elementary to being a little extra cheer for those receiving ‘Meals on Wheels.” According to her, the children’s only reward, other than a good life lesson of it’s better to give than it is to receive is the stories of how much their photos and letter mean to the elderly of the Elsberry Community.

It’s that time of year where many people begin to think of all the things they are thankful for. However, it is also that time of year where many others begin to think they have gone forgotten or how much different their life may be had they done this different or that different.

In an effort to show that they have not been forgotten and that they are still much appreciated in all they do, the third grade class of Amanda Niffen at Clarence Cannon Elementary has teamed up with the Elsberry Nutritional Center’s Meals on Wheels to not only make sure they get food but a picture, handmade by each students.
