Bowen Fifth Graders Raise $500 for Centre Street Food Pantry by Raking Leaves
While many of us slept in on our Veterans Day holiday, fifth graders at Bowen Elementary School got up early and went to work. This fall members of the 5th Grade Student Council at Bowen decided they wanted to contribute in some way to their community. After some discussion, they decided to rake leaves in the neighborhood on their Veterans Day holiday to raise donations for the Centre Street Food Pantry in Newton Centre. The students raised over $500 for a very grateful food pantry.
