Update on IB Community Projects: Successful Feminine Hygiene Product Drive!

This week Eliot-Hine’s 8th graders are presenting their IB Community Project. Previously we featured students from Ms. Harris’ advisory on their research project. After researching homelessness, these students were motivated to host a feminine hygiene product drive for House of Ruth, a women and children’s shelter, after learning these items are in greatest need. All month of May students collected donations from their community and Eliot-Hine staff members. These students were able to collect 5,000 products to donate to House of Ruth’s 11 different programs. They also did research on what it takes to run a homeless shelter and how to start a non-profit organization. Check out their photos below from their personal delivery!
