Chugga, chugga, choo, choo! Purchase School is getting on the Smile Train to help save kids’ smiles. Some people are born with deformed clefts, making it difficult to eat and speak. The Smile Train is an organization that collects donations and repairs children’s mouths.
Caring Kids is a group of 4th and 5th graders from Purchase School who do good deeds throughout Harrison. The Caring kids have also done things for Africa and soldiers going to Afghanistan. We collected donations from the families of Purchase School and sent them to the Smile Train organization. We also collected pictures of the smiling faces of people who donated money, and put them on the Purchase School Smile Train. I thought that it would be an interesting idea to combine pictures of smiles and a train to create a piece of artwork giving credit to the people who donated. Purchase School raised over $1,000!!!
