Taylor Middle School students are working on an outreach project that will benefit children in an impoverished village in Nicaragua.

B.J. Vera’s family and consumer sciences class are making cloth bags for Nicaraguan children. Vera will deliver the bags during spring break when she participates in a mission trip with her church. She hopes to deliver about 60 bags total.

Eighth-grade student Willy Phipps was the first one on board when Vera began talking about making the bags.

“I can do this,” he said.

Phipps came up with several design ideas of his own.

Vera's students who are interested in participating will be able to practice their sewing skills, while working towards a good cause.
