In Spring 2022, our School Resource Officers Detectives Gagnon and Gilbert connected with the Community Wellness Project to discuss students needs at Randolph High School and Randolph Community Middle School. This discussion sparked an idea for how the community could support students who experience housing challenges or insecurities. When students don’t have to worry about basic necessities, they can focus their energy on academic success and personal wellbeing. 

Donna Hall, Administrative Assistant with the Office of Town Manager Brian Howard, kicked off our Student Wellness Supplies Initiative through a generous donation. From there, we solicited additional donations from our Community Wellness Project Coalition. Throughout September and October, our members reached out to their own networks and secured over $600 worth of wellness supplies to support Randolph’s students. We were able to assemble 240 “goodie bags” of oral hygiene, body hygiene, and menstrual products for distribution between the high school and middle school. Altogether, we were able to completely fill a 200 liter wagon with both packaged and individual wellness products that will be divided between the two schools. 

On November 21, we officially handed off the donations to Detective Gagnon (joined by Harper). We would like to thank the following friends and partners for their contributions: Donna Hall, Dov Yoffe, Holly Flynn, Holly German, Lynne Osborn, Sharon Ron, Randolph First Congregational Church, Kathleen Bambrick and  Altrusa of Quincy, Susan Hearn and Randolph Community Partnership, Inc., and many anonynmous donors!

We are so grateful to have been able to facilitate this successful partnership and look forward to continued support for our students.
