Middle School Students Design Service Learning Project
A group of Collegiate School Middle School students recently designed a service learning project based on group interests, budget and times constraints. The students chose to visit Doorways, formerly Hospital Hospitality House, near the VCU Medical Center. The facility “provides lodging and support for referred patients and families who need to be close to the hospital but not far from the feeling of home.” While at Doorways, students and faculty met residents and prepared baked goods and bag lunches. Doorways reported that by the same evening, all the greatly appreciated baked goods and packed meals were eaten by residents.
