Wynn Middle School 8th Grader Rosalyn Impink is Tewksbury's Student Ambassador for the 2015 edition of Project 351.
At a recent School Committee meeting, Wynn School student Rosalyn Impink was honored for being Tewksbury's Student Ambassador in Project 351, a state initiative focused on leadership training and community service that brings together 8th graders from every city and town in Massachusetts.
Rosalyn did not return from the Project 351 training empty-handed. She brought home to Tewksbury the Cradles to Crayons project. Cradles to Crayons, is a nonprofit organization that provides children from birth through age 12, living in homeless or low-income situations, with the essential items they need to thrive.
According to Project 351, more than 305,000 Massachusetts children 12 years old and younger live in poor or low- income households. In any given year, more than 100,000 Massachusetts children will experience homelessness. Thanks to Rosalyn's leadership and organization, Tewksbury has the chance to help out many of these needy youngsters.
Through April 8, the Wynn Middle School is hosting Spring Greening -- a clothing and shoe drive -- for Cradles to Crayons. New or like-new donations are appreciated and may be taken to the school.
Most Needed Items:
· Boys long pants (Up to 30 inch waist)
· Boys and girls shirts (ages 2-12)
· New socks, underwear, and pajamas
· Books for children ages 7-10
