Claire’s Care Packages – Small Acts of Kindness from a Big Heart

A small act of kindness can seem very big to the person on the receiving end. Even the simplest acts, like a smile or a few caring words, can have a positive impact. This is something that Claire Casler, a fourth grader at Warren Elementary, knows well.

After hearing about other students in her school performing acts of kindness, Claire decided that she wanted to help, too. With her mother’s assistance, Claire started to make small care packages. Each package contained a toothbrush, toothpaste, deodorant, tissues, and lotion. These were given to fellow students at Warren and the Cottleville Sharing Shed, a donation based organization that provides basic household items to those in need in St. Charles County. “Each was made complete with special hand-written notes with encouraging words like Be-YOU-tiful, Bee happy, and You can do it!” said Julie Yadlosky, a school counselor at Warren.

“The other kids in the class seemed really impressed that she was able to come up with the idea, and go organize all the gift bags,” said Claire’s teacher, Cheri Alloway. “This is such a great example of generosity and I am glad the class got to hear all about her acts of kindness. She really is a proactive kid!”

Claire’s small act of kindness only demonstrates how big her heart is. While the time and effort to put together these donations may have seemed small to her, it’s clear that her care packages had a big impact.
