Sauganash Sixth Graders have been eagerly preparing to bring Misericordia Candy Days back to Sauganash School! Last year, students raised nearly $4,000 dollars for this worthy cause! Misericordia Heart of Mercy is a local organization that offers residential options and support to individuals with developmental disabilities. They successfully create an environment that maximizes their residents’ independence, dignity, and most importantly, enhances their quality of life. Many people don’t know that branches of the Misericordia campus even stretch as far as our school’s backyard!
Supporting this cause not only deepens our students’ empathy and understanding for those with different strengths and challenges, but it also increases their community awareness. Money collection will begin April 29th until May 3rd during lunch and recess periods. Let’s make this year’s Candy Days a huge success!
