Village Pines organized a child centered outreach event to support and enrich some local unfortunate children who are hospitalized or receiving routine hospital treatments
The staff made "book baskets" of multi level books and delivered to the following locations:
Miami Children Hospital
Ronald McDonald House
"Open Your Hearts" Food Drive
Village Pines is collecting new, unopened boxes of pasta and jars of pasta sauce, which will be donated to the Miami VAHS Fisher House. The Fisher House is a home away from home for families of Veterans and military service members receiving care at the VA Medical Center. It enables the veterans' family to be close during hospitalizations by providing lodging only steps away from the Medical Center at no cost.
Village Pines School students wrote letters to the Veterans residing at the Veterans Hospital in Miami
Students talked about why it is important to remember the contributions to freedom of those veterans who are still living and served our country in many ways..

The children at all grades performed age appropriate chores for one week to earn money. These monies were put together so that requested items could be purchased for mothers and children in distress. Each class then assembled and decorated boxes and also made cards. Mrs. Tejada delivered the gifts.
