The 2013-2014 Essex Middle School Kiva Team partnered with RETN to produce a series of nine public service announcements showcasing local non-profit organizations. These student-produced PSAs were produced entirely on iPads with training and technical support from RETN.
Check out this very awesome PSA they did for us:
As part of their look at how local organizations support people in Vermont, they partnered with seven community organizations, including the Vermont Foodbank, for a service learning unit.
The partnership had a few components, including a Vermont Foodbank staff visit to EMS, students coming to the Vermont Foodbank, a bottle drive that raised over $100 and the above video. Altogether, the students raised $700 for the Vermont Foodbank. That’s 2,100 meals for Vermonters in need.
Thank you to the Essex Middle School Kiva team!
