Beaumont Kids Salute Police and Fire Heroes

Students raise an incredible amount of money in just four days to help Easttown P.D. and Berwyn Fire Co.

Students at Beaumont Elementary School saluted and serenaded first responders of the Berwyn Fire Company and Easttown Police Dept. in a special Heroes Assembly Tuesday in the school cafetorium.  They also presented each organization with big checks as a "thank you" gift.

The students raised over $1000 by collecting change and doing chores and good deeds to earn money in a four day fundraising drive inspired by the national Martin Luther King Day of Service on June 21. A little extra donation from the Beaumont Home and School Association rounded the total up to $1500.  On Tuesday the HSA on behalf of the students and school comunity donated $750 each to the Berwyn Fire Company and the Easttown Police Department.

The students presented handmade "thank you" posters and cards to the firefighter and officers, sang "Ain't no high enough, ain't no valley low enough to keep from getting to you," read a list of "did you know?" facts about police and fire fighters and presented a video about who their real life heroes are.

Some of the photos from the event are attached to this article.

To see a far more extensive photo gallery with dozens of photos of the children, first responders teachers and parents go to the Tredyffrin Patch page on Facebook.

Hats off to Beaumont! What a perfect MLK Day community Service project. There are so many good things about this, I probably won't have enough space to write them all down. When kids are involved in a service project from start to finish, it helps them understand the impact of their good deeds. Doing projects like this together helps them develop a sense of community. It teaches kids that their actions do make a difference because they are contributing and they get to see and feel the consequences of giving back. It teaches them that they can make a positive difference in their lives and the lives of others. I don't know for sure but this looks like the handy work of Kerri Martin, Judith Root, Stephanie Demming and all the other GREAT mom's, staff and care givers at Beaumont. It's things like this that make a community great. Thanks!
