Students Raise Awareness about Homelessness
Mayor Dana Redd did the ribbon cutting honors to mark the completion of the new CK Cafe and commercial kitchen at 1506 Federal Street.
Under the direction of teachers Carol Holt and Nick Rizzo, 7th Grade students at Bell Oaks Elementary School have been working for months on a homeless awareness service learning project. CK is one of several nonprofits they have partnered with to learn more about homelessness in our area. For the Kitchen, they decorated placemats with inspirational drawings and messages, and delivered them for our dinner guests. The students hosted an event, Night Under the Stars, to raise money for the organizations they worked with and to raise awareness about the issue of homelessness. CK staff who attended the event enjoyed delicious food made and served by the students, great music provided by faculty members and a wonderful video students made about homelessness. The 7th graders were the perfect hosts: they even distributed handmade pottery bowls inscribed with inspirational words to all of the guests as they were leaving.
