BAKER — Baker School's Junior and Senior Beta Clubs accepted a challenge to come up with a community service project that would have a local impact.
Several students have family members who are elderly and require full-time care. With spring in the air, they decided to help local convalescent homes.
They collected items they thought the residents would need or want, such as toiletries, puzzles, games and Easter eggs.
The 107 students assembled six big baskets, with color-coded, sugar-free and sugary eggs; stuffed the eggs; and assembled the baskets just in time for delivery April 14 to Crestview Manor, Crestview Rehabilitation Center, Carrington Manor, Silvercrest Health and Rehabilitation Center, Shoal Creek Rehabilitation Center, and Kindred at Home.
