Each year, Mrs. Bratt’s American Literature class reads the book Pay it Forward by Catherine Ryan Hyde.  Over the past three years, every class who has read the book has also done a project in which they “pay it forward” to help a community need.

This year, the class of 2016 has selected a project which aims to help the homeless.  The project involves collecting new hygiene items that can be put into plastic bags to give to the homeless in Hancock County.  All items will be given to City Mission for distribution.  The class is looking for items such as:

  • Band-Aids
  • Soap (bar soap is preferable)
  • Shampoo (travel size)
  • Lotion (travel size)
  • Deodorant (travel size)
  • Toothbrushes
  • Toothpaste (travel size)
  • Wet wipes (small package)
  • New socks (men, women, or children)
  • Gloves/hats/mittens

Many items cost less than one dollar and can always be purchased at local dollar stores. 

If you are willing to donate one or more items, please bring them to the box inside of Mrs. Bratt’s room by December 17th

If you have any questions, please feel free to email Mrs. Bratt at bratts@vanlueschool.org or call 419-387-7724 to be connected to her classroom.

The class of 2016 thanks you for your consideration and your effort to help them “pay it forward” this holiday season!
