WESTFIELD – Munger Hill Elementary School’s youngest students partnered up with their friends at the Westfield Gardens to spread some holiday cheer to the residents of the senior living center.

Craig Bowers from the Westfield Gardens kitchen staff came up with the idea for the kindergarteners to add some holiday-themed pictures and greetings to the paper placemats their residents would be using when eating their holiday meal on Dec. 25.

“Our classes were overjoyed at the idea and had tons of fun making them, and are very happy knowing they are helping bring cheer to senior citizens in our community who may not be able to spend the holiday with their families,” said Munger Hill secretary Nicole Argiro.

ArgiBowers and the residents were so happy with how they came out they asked them to do it again for Christmas.
