ITMMS Bringing Smiles... One Pillow Case At-A-Time!
Many of our staff members are involved in the ConKerr Organization that makes and delivers bright and colorful pillowcases to hospitals for children facing long term illnesses. On Friday, September 12, 2014, students and staff of the Island Trees Memorial Middle School gathered to sew 82 Halloween-themed pillow cases to be donated to four local hospitals and two pediatric cancer centers. During the fall season, ConKerr will deliver the pillow cases to hospitals and it is our goal that these creations will brighten the day of these children.
We thank the students and teachers for participating in this fantastic and important community service project. Thank you to Mrs. Samantha Bunster for working with the ConKerr Organization to have these 82 pillow cases delivered to children's hospitals. We look forward to doing this activity again with our students and staff and brightening the lives of children who are suffering from long term illnesses.
