TOMS RIVER – Westminster Nursey School students decorated bags for lunches as part of the Open Arms 24th annual St. Patrick’s Day lunch.
The 3-, 4-, and-5-year-old classes in March designed the bags that held corned beef lunches. The lunch fundraiser–$10 per bag–benefitted Contact of Ocean & Monmouth Counties and Harbor House.
“We engage our students and their families in a number of community outreach projects during the year,” Michele Zaragoza, nursey school director, said. “We feel it’s important for our young friends to understand not just about the world around them but they are a part of that world and they can make it a better place even at this age by doing something kind for others. By decorating the bags for the St. Patrick’s Day Lunch, these young children will be putting a smile on the many faces of those that are recipients of the artwork and those that benefit from the fundraiser itself.”
The Westminster Nursery School, located on Hooper Avenue, is the oldest and largest church-related nonprofit nursey school in the state. For more information, call 732-349-0535 or visit wnstr.org.
