Type 1 Diabetes Awareness Month Drive

Type 1 Diabetes Awareness

Hello Staff and Students! It’s almost November and that means Type 1 Diabetes (T1D) Month. Ms Mann’s 8th grade PBL will be collecting your extra or unwanted wrapped Halloween candy for people with type 1 diabetes.

People with T1D sometimes need snacks like candy FAST when their blood sugar runs low. Candy CAN save the life of a person with T1D.

After Halloween, please bring in any wrapped candy that you don’t like, don’t want or just want to donate to help kids with Type 1 Diabetes.

Your donated wrapped Halloween candy will be collected and sorted out to make bags of candy for teachers to help keep kids with T1D safe at RA Jones and Collins Elementary.

Please drop off your extra, wrapped Halloween candy to Ms Mann’s room (116) or look for the bins around school. Every little bit helps so bring in your unwanted or extra wrapped Halloween candy after you go Trick or Treating on Tuesday, October 31.
