When you Need a Hand to Hold, ASYSST will be there

On July 20, 2021 the students of ASYSST Summer Camp demonstrated an act of goodwill by providing their time and services to the community. During this day of summer camp, the students put together grief bags for the Hand to Hold organization that is housed at Ewing High School (EHS). These bags are given out to students and staff in need, but mainly students who have lost a loved one. Grief bags offer resource information for students during the school day and also provide information for after school hours. There are also some sensory items that are included as a way to help the student decompress during this very difficult time. This is a new program at EHS. I am proud that the students, ASYSST and EHS have come together to do such a wonderful thing to support those in need! We will continue this initiative as long as we can.
