Gift Bags for Veterans
Beasley Elementary School collected sample and travel size toiletries, pens and notepads to make individual care bags for the patients at The Jefferson Barracks Veterans Hospital. These items are much needed by the veterans. Fourth grade students from Beasley's service club, Generous Jaguars, demonstrated for first grade students how to decorate the bags, then another group of fourth grade Generous Jaguars filled the bags with the toiletry items, pens, notepads and a small ornament. Two weeks before Christmas, the fourth grade Generous Jaguars and their parents went to the Veterans hospital to deliver the bags to the patients. The students worked together to complete this project.
