WESTPORT, Conn. -- For more than 40 years, students and staff at Coleytown Middle School in Westport have gathered the day before Thanksgiving to present donations of food and funds to many area not-for-profit organizations during the annual Giving Assembly.
This year, the Coleytown Middle School community gave their thanks to the Westport community by contributing food, boxes of school supplies, and monetary donations, which were collected during the month of November to help the underserved in the area.
CMS student representatives presented their gifts to representatives from seven organizations: Homes with Hope, Saugatuck Congregational Church, Westport’s Department of Human Services, Al’s Angels, Connecticut Quest for Peace, and the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
In addition to the presentations, CMS’s instrumental and vocal music groups added music and entertainment to the occasion.
