August 2016: Girls on the Run Gives Back - Booksin Elementary
The community impact project is an integral part of the Girls on the Run curriculum where the girls learn about gratitude and their connection to the world around them. Every year, each Girls on the Run team plans and implements a community impact project during their lesson time. Periodically we highlight one of these projects, which range from planting flowers on school grounds to making cards to send to seniors. This month we're featuring the 2016 Booksin Girls on the Run team and their work to support the San Jose Animal Care Center.
The response from the school and the neighborhood was overwhelming, and the girls were able to fill up the truck the Animal Care Center sent to Booksin's last Girls on the Run practice with all of the supplies they had collected.
