Vineland students send Skittles as a sign of hope to students in Japan
Through a collaborative effort and some colorful fundraising, students at Vineland’s Bishop Schad Regional School are helping their peers in Ishinomaki, Japan.
With the help of a local company that does business in Japan, the Vineland students will ship a 540-pound package to Tokyo, filled with Skittles and school supplies.
From there, students at Tokyo’s all-boys Saint Mary’s International School will deliver the package to two shelters in Ishniomaki.
Meant to be a symbol of hope, the Skittles are accompanied by $1,000 worth of markets, crayons, writing tablets and other school supplies.
