Yesterday October 16th 2012, the Monticello Middle School completed their second annual shoe and clothes drive to benefit the poor children in Africa. Thousands of pairs of shoes and clothes came pouring through the doors of the middle school as students, excited and enthusiastic, came to school loaded with bags of clothes and shoes to support MADI for its work of helping poor kids in Africa. In addition to bringing in the donations, the students spent time sorting and packing the shoes and clothes. Being there during this activity and witnessing firsthand how excited the students were really humbled me. I said to myself, “I wish adults could be as selfless as these children.” The world would be a better place if we could all act and think like they do doing small things with big differences. THANK YOU BRAVE STUDENTS OF MONTICELLO MIDDLE SCHOOL FOR MAKING A DIFFERENCE.
Special thanks to the teachers and administration of the Monticello Middle School for their effort in promoting and coordinating the donation drive. Also want to thank the parents and community members for being supportive to the kids during this event. We also appreciate the financial contribution to help with the shipping cost of the donations to Africa. We look forward to growing our relationship with the school improving on aspects and opening avenues of learning and experience for the students. MADI is truly grateful for this opportunity.
