Last week students of Ware Academy in Gloucester completed handmade artistic fingerprint posters to be displayed in the waiting room of the newly-constructed Gloucester-Mathews Free Clinic (GMFC).
The two institutions have similar missions regarding helping the community, healthy living and providing care to others. This partnership has proven to be a solid and committed entity in which students benefit from their contributions and learn how empathy and support positively affect the community.
Third, fourth and fifth grade teachers Kim Ward, Wendy Gardiner and Tracy Pausic have made it a point for their students at Ware Academy to be involved in assisting families at the GMFC. Beginning several years ago, the Lower School Student Council Association found an opportunity to become involved and the energy and enthusiasm has not waned!
With the theme of “Unity, Dream and Peace” the students of Ware Academy hope to provide a smile along with encouragement to the GMFC and its patients.
