Greenwich preschoolers fill backpacks to prepare Stamford students for camping trip


GREENWICH — Students in the Selma Maisel Nursery School at Temple Sholom took part in a community service project.

The preschoolers helped to fill 10 backpacks with essential items to donate to the Stamford-based nonprofit Starfish Connection. The youngsters in the nursery school placed items in the backpacks and helped to “deliver” them to representatives of the nonprofit who dropped by the nursery school in Greenwich.

The backpacks will be given to underserved students in Grades 5 through 10 for an upcoming trip to High Rock Camp in the Berkshires in Massachusetts.


Starfish Connection is an all-volunteer organization that seeks to close Stamford’s academic achievement gap through mentoring, enrichment programs and educational support.
