Candy Cane Kindness

Members of the MAHS No Place for Hate Club sponsored a sweet messenger service for the holidays – Candy Cane Kindness!

Members of the Meyersdale Area High School No Place for Hate Club held an especially “sweet” event this week – Candy Cane Kindness. Students were invited to send special “candy cane” messages to their classmates and teachers. These sweet messages were hand-delivered to students before they embarked on their holiday break.

“The members of No Place for Hate decided they wanted to do something nice for everyone to help get in the holiday spirit, so they came up with the idea of spreading Candy Cane Kindness. Every student in grades 9-12 received a candy cane with a message attached,” explained club advisor Angel Floyd. “ Students were also encouraged to write messages to teachers. The messages were intended to make everyone feel special this Christmas!”

“We really wanted to create an event to let all students know they are loved and cared for during the holidays. Not everyone looks forward to this time of year, and we want everyone to know they are cared for and not alone,” added member Isabella Friend.

Members of the club worked diligently to ensure each student received a message and extended the program to include faculty and staff.

“I loved this activity! I saw all the candy canes before they were delivered, and it made me smile to read the kind messages that were spread by the students in our school,” Floyd added. “The feedback from both students and teachers was very positive, so I hope that we can continue to do similar activities in the future!”
