Tabernacle 2nd grader learns lesson on empathy, leads effort to help the needy back button

Tabernacle student helps the needy
Several weeks ago, 2nd grade students from Tabernacle Elementary were learning lessons on empathy.  From those lessons, empathy sparked in the heart of one of Mrs. Fulp's students, Sarah Reeder. Sarah learned of an upcoming trip to West Virginia to help the needy and felt led to collect items to send. 
Displaying leadership in class, Sarah asked her classmates, as well as the rest of the 2nd grade students, if they would like to participate by bringing in toys, clothes, and food to send to less fortunate children.  In just a short time, items began pouring in.  Through their combined efforts, over 9 large trash bags and 2 boxes filled with items requested were collected to send to the needy.  Students also made cards for the children, telling the less fortunate how special they were and that they were being thought of by Tabernacle's 2nd graders.  The lesson on empathy was definitely taken to heart and displayed with these students.
This is what Sarah wrote herself:
My name is Sarah Reeder and I go to Tabernacle Elementary. I heard of a project and I decided to tell my class about it. Mrs. Hill and Miss Fulp helped me out. It was for children in need in West Virginia. All of second grade got involved. We collected toys, clothes and food. We ended up collecting a lot of stuff. They are going to take it to them on Wednesday December 7. It made me feel very happy to help people.
