SARATOGA SPRINGS — During the week of May 14-18, Geyser Road Elementary School participated in their first ever Care for Community Project, a Serve-A-Thon event.

“In addition to raising funds for our current and future PTO funded programs, the Serve-athon is an opportunity for our students to reach out and offer assistance to those in need within their community and beyond. Please join Geyser Elementary students grades K-5 as they make a difference not only for their school but within their community,” explained the press release.

All students colored 314 placemats to be used at the dining hall at Saratoga Office for Aging. The Kindergartners and first graders also made decorations for the Wesley Community Center. Second graders also created 150 busy bags for the young patients and visitors at Albany Med Pediatrics. The third graders also made 67 blankets for shelter pets at Comfort for Critters. The fourth graders wrote 58 handmade notes for Letters to Our Troops, along with nature education and grounds cleanup at State Park Grounds Cleanup. Fifth graders also created place mats for Saratoga Office for Aging and participated in the flag ceremony, raised 50 flags throughout the cemetery, and helped plant flowers at the local Military cemetery. They also made 123 para-cord survival bracelets through Operation Gratitude.
