The Denair Charter Academy’s Love in Action service club held its first school-wide event on Thursday.

Students sewed 100 draw-string bags, organized and placed school supplies in each bag and prepared them for shipment to the Mennonite Central Committee with an ultimate destination for under-privileged children in Third World and poverty stricken countries.

School supplies in the bags included four spiral bound notebooks, a ruler, erasers, a box of colored pencils and four pencils. Denair Charter Academy teachers and staff members donated money for the supplies and Staples chipped in $100.

Advisors Sally Baker and Geralyn Borrelli said the Love in Action service club is in its second year of existence and plans for growth are in the works.

“The goal is to build good citizenship and give the students a chance to see a bigger picture of the world,” said Baker.
