Marge Jock's sixth grade family and consumer sciences classes at Ray Middle School recently made 50 walker bags and donated them to individuals that the students know and to residents of James Square, Conifer Village and Camillus Ridge Assisted Living Center. Some of the bags were given to St. Joseph's Hospital Health Care Center to be distributed by their affiliates and for some of their own surgical patients.
The students learn basic sewing skills as a part of the sixth grade family and consumer sciences curriculum. The Ray PTA generously donated funding to provide materials for this project.
"The students used their newly acquired skills to work cooperatively with others to make these gifts for people in our community," Jock said. "This activity provided an excellent opportunity to learn to share their time and talents to benefit others. The recipients are grateful for their effort."
This is just one example of the quote, "Baldwinsville, a great place to live and give."
