Students preparing meal packs for the needy.

On Friday September 15, 2017, the senior class from Caldwell Alternative participated in the 22nd United Way of North Central Massachusetts’ Annual Day of Caring. It was estimated that over 500 volunteers from area companies and organizations, including 2,000 students from other area schools, donated the day to assist local health and human service agencies with a host of maintenance projects that normally cannot get done due to financial and personnel constraints.  The students from Caldwell helped to pack meal kits that will help to feed needy families here in Central Massachusetts. The goal for the day’s meal packing initiative was to pack 22,000 meals.
