Devereux Glenholme School hosts a three-hour workshop

(Washington, CT)

WASHINGTON - Students at Devereux Glenholme School recently picked up markers, construction paper and glue and decorated 15 large boxes. These 15 boxes housed Thanksgiving dinners that were delivered to the VNA Northwest for needy families in the local community.

Since 1997, the Glenholme School's students have organized a can food drive, shopped and assembled 15 baskets that are given to the Visiting Nurses Association Northwest.

The VNA distributes the baskets the day before Thanksgiving to local families who would benefit from a Thanksgiving dinner.
Bridget Beauchaine, administrative assistant to the director of the VNA, said the baskets served, "16 families that represented 26 adults, seven children and two teenagers.

"The people who received the baskets were thrilled with the extra touches from the children. They loved the decorated turkey boxes and cards. Their enthusiasm and creativity really made a difference."
