Every year, the RBR student body takes a break from lunch and study to create homemade cards for children who will be spending their holidays in hospitals. This national initiative was adapted by RBR teacher Jennifer Casaine over four years ago. She is assisted by RBR Teacher Cassandra Dorn. The national Cards for Hospitalized Kids program began five years ago and has sent cards to over 100,000 hospitalized children throughout the United States.
Mrs. Casaine states, “I thought this would be a great way for our kids at RBR to do something here at school for others their own age during the holidays.”
Pictured above are some of the RBR students with Ms. Casaine creating their homemade holiday wishes. They are (left to right): Nicole Gaillard, Union Beach; Saloni Ajami, Millstone; Sammie Feder, Millstone; Shelley Banfield, Shrewsbury; Charlotte Jansky, Little Silver; Dannielle Wolf, Shrewsbury; Jennifer Casaine, Kay Franzese, Monmouth Beach; Jael Cross, Red Bank; Ash Riegler, Union Beach.
