                                                                             GEARS Donation

GEARS Kids Center Preschool and Kindergarten Programs donated items to the Elizabethtown Community Housing and Outreach Service, (ECHOS), for the homeless shelter.  Peggy McFarland, an ECHOS representative, came in to accept the donations and talk to the kids about how their donations will help others in their community. Items included were Pajama and Book Sets, toiletries, hats, gift cards, towels and more.

Part of the GEARS Kids Center mission is to be an active part in the community and this is just one small way to show the children how they can make a difference and be a part of something larger.  Kids Center is always looking for more ways to be an active part of the community and if you have any suggestions of ways for the kids to contribute, please contact Beth or Kelly at 717-367-0119.  In the past, GEARS Kids Center has painted borough trash cans, picked up trash, made and donated pet treats and toys, and made craft kits for ECHOS to use.
