EASTON — As part of a service learning project, students in Easton Middle School teacher Lauri Bell’s eighth grade health classes recently presented care packages to Chesapeake Treatment Services, LLC.

The packages will be given to people seeking treatment for addiction. The students donated approximately 120 care packages, posters with encouraging sayings and inspirational art work. With every care package, the students included notes of encouragement to the recipient.

Susan Knade and Matt James from Chesapeake Treatment Services, LLC, visited the school to pick up the care packages. Although this is not the first time Bell has offered this project to her classes, “the response this year was outstanding,” according to a news release from Talbot County Public Schools.

“I am very proud of my students for their generosity and creativity,” Bell said. “It was wonderful to see their enthusiastic participation in this project.”
