Community-based giving highlight: This is a weekly blog post that highlights some of the various ways in which Compassion Coalition serves our community. Check back every Monday for new posts.
Over the last year and a half we’ve been providing a large number of local schools with healthy snacks for their students. After school tutoring programs, classroom snacks, and after school programs explained that kids were more open to staying after school when being fed because there was a lack of food at home. It’s a win/win, children are being fed, and learning to be the best students they can be.
Then the concept of healthy living clubs and creating healthy lifestyles was brought to the table. We jumped on board 110%! We have provided yoga mats to Donovan Middle School (pictured! ❤️), Albany Elementary, Columbus Elementary, and most recently, MLK Elementary with yoga mats for newly started healthy lifestyle and yoga clubs.
We are so proud to partner with all of you! Utica and other area schools are becoming healthier environments, teaching both mental and physical health because of the passion of our local educators.
