A group of third graders at the North Elementary STEAM Academy recently challenged the community to donate items and make care packages for the parents of NICU babies at Baylor Scott and White Hospital in Fort Worth.
The "Baby Bear Helpers" Destination Imagination (DI) team selected the project out of six DI challenges because one of the students shared his story about being in the NICU as a baby.
Students collected socks, lotions, hand sanitizers, baby books, blankets and more. Then DI members, along with the community, prepared 30 care packages for the families.
Students are: Cohen Jackson, Annabella Rader, William Obert, AJ Coote, Conner Soukaseume, Austin Barber and Maricella Deleon. Teacher is Jessica Fiew.
