Shaker Lane Students Collects Hats and Mittens for the Homeless

LITTLETON — Principal Michelle Kane is pleased to announce that Shaker Lane Elementary School students came together to donate hundreds of hats and mittens for those in need this winter.

Over the last month, the Shaker Lane community joined forces to collect 240 winter hats and 237 pairs of mittens and gloves for the families served by House of Hope in Lowell. House of Hope is a nonprofit focused on helping homeless families find shelter and ultimately gain stable housing. 

The hat and mitten drive was Shaker Lane’s latest Compassion Project, which they conduct a variety of times throughout each year to support a number of community organizations and causes.

“Our students and families always step up to support our outreach efforts, and I’m so proud of the work they did over the last month to collect these items for people in need,” Principal Kane said. “These projects are a great way for our kids to learn about the importance of giving back and being active members of their community.”
