The series of Thoughtful Thursday at Bethpage Union Free School District’s Central Boulevard Elementary School continued on Jan. 24 as students decorated placemats for Meals on Wheels recipients.

Throughout the day, students put together illustrations of food and beverage on placemats to be distributed during Meals on Wheels deliveries. They also added short positive messages surrounding the drawings.

Meals on Wheels is represented in almost every community in America as the company is committed to supporting senior neighbors to live healthier and more nourished lives in their own homes. The core of the service is a nutritious meal, companionship and a watchful eye on the health and safety of the seniors.

“We hope to brighten the day of our neighbors and spread some cheer with our decorated placements,” said second-grade teacher Patricia Tierney.
