Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s Kindness and Justice Challenge

I am a fourth grade teacher at Cherry Avenue Elementary School in West Sayville, NY. As part of our school's participation in the Annual Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s Kindness and Justice Challenge students help those in need.

This year I agreed to teach volunteers how to knit if they agreed to knit at least one rectangle for Warm Up America after they learned how. We researched "Warm Up America" online and sent our afghan pieces into our local Michael's Craft Store.

We also sent letters home to parents so that those who knew how to knit and crochet could contribute also.
