Platt Helps Hearts At the
Bossier Council On Aging
Nothing beats the smile of a child and there were plenty to go around at the Bossier Council on Aging when second and third graders from Platt Elementary visited recently.
Platt chose to help senior citizens as part of Bossier Schools’ district-wide community service initiative, “Helping Hearts: The Power of We.”
Principal Cathy Turner polled the BCOA about its needs, then put a plan into action. Each week for a month, students and faculty members collected different items such as blankets, socks, toiletries, Bingo prizes and household goods.
The school also held two fundraisers to raise money for the Council’s Meals on Wheels program, which provides a hot meal each weekday to area senior citizens. For many, it is the only balanced meal they eat. Platt collected an impressive $1,021 which will help ensure their neighbors get that daily food delivery.
Platt’s efforts did not end there. Students then traveled to the BCOA to drop off the items they collected in person. While there they got to tour the facility, visit with the senior adults and learn about the services provided to them.
Turner said her students had a great time visiting with their newly made friends -- and enjoyed the lemon cake and punch. Sweet!
Platt has made a huge difference in the lives of seniors, and we applaud them for helping hearts. There’s a lot to be said about the power of we!
