Elementary students help with Chemo Comfort Bags

Herkimer Elementary School led a very successful Comfort Bag Drive due to the many generous donations from faculty, students and their families.

These donations were used towards making over 400 bags to be given to people not only in our school community but also to many area hospitals and treatment centers caring for cancer patients.

Mrs. McCumber’s second grade class was able to help by sorting and organizing the donations before they were used to stuff the bags. The second graders also wrote many heartfelt and encouraging messages on paper hearts to uplift the spirits of the people receiving the bags. Each message was included in a bag to help add an extra special touch.
