Fifth grade students at Mason Intermediate are getting crafty for a cause.
Students in Amy Sheet’s class created handcrafted snowflake ornaments this month as a way to raise money for Autism Speaks, a leading nonprofit autism science and advocacy organization.
Like a real snowflake, each ornament is unique, crafted with recycled puzzle pieces — the symbol for autism awareness.
Ornament cost is $5, with all proceeds benefiting Autism Speaks. Purchase ornaments these Mason retailers:
- Kidd Coffee, 322 Reading Road
- Mims off Main, 623 Reading Road
- Main Street Sweets, 200 E. Main Street
“It’s been powerful watching the students get so involved in this project,” said Sheets. “Not only was the project itself fun, but the students have shown great passion for helping others.
