Social Justice League Brings Holiday Cheer

Students in the Middle School Social Justice League were recently hard at work, donating their time and talents to spread some holiday cheer to those who need it.

Building on the success of their efforts last year, students constructed gingerbread houses and donated them along with construction candies and frosting to Be Alright, a support network for domestic violence shelters across the city. The organization will use the donated items for a festive activity during its annual family holiday party, where victims of domestic violence and their children can decorate the houses together.
