The shirts had special messages attached encouraging them that their future will be better and they hope the shirts will bring a smile to their face.

Terry Calloway with the Wichita Children’s Home came to CMA to pick up the shirts and talked with the students about how WCH help children in Wichita and surrounding communities.

Every Jackson Elementary student worked to give back to the community by having a school-wide community service project packaging meals for Numana. The students and staff packaged 20,000 meals during the day. Every time they made enough meal packets to fill a box, a student rang a gong and everyone cheered. The PreK students decorated the boxes for the meals.

All the meals they school packaged will be used to feed hungry families in Kansas.
