Humboldt middle school students and their 7th grade social studies teacher, Katie Phillips, packaged their latest round of “Brave Bags” on Wednesday, May 1.
The 501c3 nonprofit organization seeks to create care packages for children in Iowa who are hospitalized. The bags contain items such as toiletries, socks, small toys and art. Phillips and her students have been able to distribute over 1,000 Brave Bags to hospitals across Iowa.
“I firmly believe that even at a young age, children can contribute positively to our community and the world at large. Little did I know the profound impact and numerous lessons that Brave Bags would impart to my students," Phillips said. Each bag is personalized for the age group and gender of the child who will receive the bag.
