CAPStone is the community action program that all 8th graders participate in before they finish middle school. During the 2020-2021 school year, I led an action program meant to benefit new mothers & caregivers. For this project, we hosted a schoolwide diaper drive. Diapers collected were donated to Little Essentials – an organization based in Brooklyn that collects diapers (and other supplies for new mothers & babies). We ended up collecting over 30 large packs of diapers, which were donated to the organization in June 2021. Through the course of this community action, students:
- Wrote outreach emails & recorded informational videos
- Designed flyers in Canva
- Distributed the flyers
Below is a Pear Deck I created that was shared with the students at the beginning of the action.
