At Battle Creek Montessori Academy, students have been collecting bags for a local foster care agency. The agency stuffs the bags with clothes, toiletries and other necessities so that when the kids are removed from the home and put into foster care, they have all the things that they need. This provides a sense of safety for the children as they transition into foster care.
On November 14, they also requested students to bring in one item daily for what they called the reverse advent calendar. The supplies that have been collected will be donated to families within their own community.
