In honor of Moravian Academy’s 277 birthday, the early childhood teachers talked with students about making birthdays special for every child. As a result, primer, prekindergarten and kindergarten students and families collected hundreds of items to donate to Northeast Ministries Food bank. Neatly organized in colorful boxes, donations were special to the birthday theme and included things like candles, frosting, cake and brownie mixes, and other festive items that make children’s birthdays special. Community service efforts fill the hearts of those who give and those who receive.
