Instead of the traditional gift exchange in Kindergarten, this year the students at Legacy Christian Academy in Norton, MA, elected to help homeless children through Project Night Night. The students learned firsthand that Christmas is really about giving to others and how God gave us the greatest gift of all Jesus!

Students in the other grades at Legacy Christian Academy from Prekindergarten through Grade 12 also gave back by holding a shoe drive, a coat drive and the Senior class adopted a family in Brockton who is in special need as they rebuild their lives. The kindergarten class put together Project Night Night tote bags which were taken to the local shelter, New Hope, in Attleboro.

The organization works to help end domestic and sexual violence by helping people live safer lives. Project Night Night, a non-profit organization, donates over 25,000 Night Night Packages each year, free of charge, to homeless children who need childhood essentials to feel secure, cozy, ready to learn, and significant.

Each Night Night Package contains a new security blanket, an age-appropriate children s book, and a stuffed animal all nestled inside a new canvas tote bag. By providing objects of reliable comfort, Project Night Night reduces trauma and advances the emotional and cognitive well-being of the children served.

Every child who receives a Night Night Packages leaves the shelter owning a book which encourages reading and family bonding, a security blanket which can be cuddled, and a stuffed animal which can become a cherished friend.

Project Night Night s prime objective is to deliver Night Night Packages to every homeless child in the country who needs one.

The students at Legacy Christian Academy look forward to continuing the spirit of giving in the new year.
