At their first meeting of the year, the BoPHopers at AIS Danbury had a wonderful visit with former faculty member Mrs. McCarthy. When Mrs. McCarthy was diagnosed with ALS, students wanted to help her manage the big changes to come. Club members and leaders worked hard last year, hosting bake sales and ice cream socials to raise funds for this beloved faculty member.
Mrs. McCarthy was so happy to visit with the BoPH club and overjoyed to receive their thoughtful gift. She offered some wonderful words to the club on kindness: “Our strength is spreading kindness…Everywhere you go in the world has beautiful people. You wouldn’t believe how kind…Smile at people, even when they aren’t smiling at you.”
Thank you, AIS Danbury and Mrs. McCarthy for spreading kindness and care in your community!
