Save Our Schools for Our Kids Foundation would like to graciously thank the Halfinger Farm of Higganum, Connecticut for donating over 350 pumpkins to give to Pre-K to fifth grade elementary students just shy of Halloween.
Founder Donald L. Green, Jr. and President Yvonne Renee Davis stopped at the Fred D. Wish in Hartford, Connecticut, the Laurel Elementary School and New Creations Academy of Bloomfield to put smiles on their faces. Pumpkins were given as rewards to students with perfect attendance at Wish. There was a front lawn Gratitude Pumpkin Patch and afterschool program at Laurel, and a surprise for the little ones at New Creations Academy and Day Care Center.
“We are partnering with Halfinger Farms to help our children learn about healthy eating, experience the arts and learn the importance of being grateful to others,” said Donald L. Green, Jr. “Save Our Schools for Our Kids Foundation believes in consistently investing in our youth at all levels. We are looking forward establishing a long-term relationship with Principal Mrs. Ryan and Mrs. Dwyer of these two schools and the early learning center to make a difference in the lives of children.”
SOS4OKs thanks the Bloomfield Public Schools District for collaborating with us to help us identify the school for us to give pumpkins, and for helping us promote our back-to-school backpack and school supplies to the over 350 children as they prepared to return to school.
Known for their beautiful daffodils, Save Our Schools for Our Kids will lead a school bus trip for Fred D. Wish, Laurel Elementary School and New Creation Academy's students to visit Halfinger for a walking tour, see the flowers and have lunch. If you would like to help sponsor this trip, please contact us.
