Thank You Letter From Shorewood School District's Day of Service
On January 19, Shorewood School District staff took part in their third annual National Day of Service. From 12:30 – 3:30 p.m., teachers and faculty members worked in teams, volunteering their service for various non-profit organizations and events across the Milwaukee area and within the Village of Shorewood. This Day of Service was intended to involve the District in Martin Luther King Jr. Day, the only federal holiday observed as a national day of service – "a day on, not a day off."
Since this day of service, the District recently received a thank you letter from one of the organizations with which staff volunteered, the River Park Court Apartment Complex. Staff members helped to either host a District-sponsored bingo game for senior citizens in the complex's community room or to create Valentine's Day cards for the seniors living in the complex. Below is the thank you letter that was received.
"Dear Shorewood School District Staff,
Thank you to you and to all of the Shorewood teachers for playing BINGO with our clients at the River Park Court Apartments. They have said that it was wonderful and they all enjoyed it very much. Thanks so much for thinking of them.
The Valentines were fantastic! Some of our volunteers delivered them to some of our homebound clients. Many of them called us in tears to thank us for the beautiful cards. For most, it was the only valentine they received that day. It meant so much to all of those clients.
Please let all of the teachers know that they have really touched the lives of many seniors in Shorewood and the North Shore.
Thanks again for thinking of Shoreline and the seniors we help! Have a great weekend. Stay warm!"
