Bellevue Kindness Challenge at Medina – January 23-28

The Bellevue PTSA Council in partnership with Camp Kindness Counts is organizing the Bellevue Kindness Challenge. At Medina Elementary, we are collecting items and assembling "kindness bags" for the Congregations for the Homeless and The Sophia Way in Bellevue. We will collect essential items including toothbrushes and travel-size toiletries, tissues, wipes, and Q-tips. Also ear plugs, women's socks and knit gloves, men’s gloves and socks, hand warmers, granola bars, and handwritten notes of kindness from our students. The collection week will be January 23-28. Please send any donated items in gallon-size ziplock bags and remember to include a handwritten kind note or picture to include in our kindness bags. Collection bins will be set up at the school entrance. If you have any questions, see flyer or please email Manda Ederer or Karyn O’Hara at virtues@medinapta.org.
