Crosby Elementary School students and staff members honored healthcare workers at an area transitional care facility on National Caregivers Day, Friday, February 19.  Through a series of collections, for events ranging from themed dress-up days to staff jeans days, the school raised enough money to send a mobile coffee truck to Shawneespring of Harrison to treat their 70 employees.

The Crosby staff, in an effort to bring some fun into this crazy year, is implementing “Fun Friday” activities.  Using a national day calendar, their Fun Friday Committee selected a theme for each Friday, and once a month, selected a group for which to bring awareness or perform a service project. 

The mobile coffee truck, Grounded Coffee Transit, visited Crosby in December for a staff holiday treat.  It brought the school staff so much joy, they thought it would be the perfect way to show their appreciation to Shawneespring staff members.

Through the generosity of Crosby students and staff, they not only raised enough to pay for the coffee truck, but had enough left over to make a $700 donation to Cincinnati Children's Hospital in the memory of former Crosby student, Madison Owens.
