Kindness Crusade

Veterans Memorial families,

Veterans Memorial Elementary School is engaging in a Crusade of Kindness by hosting a donation drive for The Kindness Project whose mission is to help support children in foster care and their families throughout the greater Lehigh Valley. The Kindness Project is an all-volunteer, donation-based, non-profit that supplies clothing, furniture, and other essential items free of charge to their serving families. A physical shop called “The Kindness Exchange” is located in Emmaus, PA. As a ‘foster closest,’ ALL items are provided for FREE which enables the foster family to provide for the most basic needs of the child(ren) quickly and help ease the transition of the child(ren) into their new foster home.

Please click HERE to read our flyer which provides more details about our donation drive as well as information about additional school-wide kindness activities being planned to support this great cause.
