Fifth-graders at Norwalk-La Mirada Unified’s Eastwood Elementary School decided to forgo their annual Thanksgiving party to make “Blessing Bags” for the homeless on Tuesday, Nov. 26. Students made bags that contained toiletries and other essentials, along with a letter of encouragement from the children. Photos of the event are available.
