Warriors Learn Compassion Visit Homeless Shelter

December 2011

Christmas is the season of giving, but many are never taught that aspect of the season.

The VIET Afterschool Academy brought several students to a homeless shelter to deliver gently worn clothes and toiletries to the residents.

Fourth grader Makayla recounts her visit . . .

“My friend and I are riding in Ms. Mahhaman’s (sic) car. Eight minutes later we made it to the homeless shelter. They had 96 beds in the homeless shelter. They eat three times a day. They were nice enough to give us snacks because we were kind. That is my story about my field trip to the homeless shelter.”
