NECC students help at holiday

HAVERHILL — Northern Essex Community College students in Professor Isabelle Gagne’s Developmental Psychology 1: Childhood and Adolescence course took time to volunteer and donate goods to Emmaus Inc. in Haverhill this holiday season.

After seeing a video in class on homelessness, Gagne’s students decided to help by collecting and donating goods to Emmaus. They decided to do this on their own and out of the goodness of their hearts, Gagne said. Items collected included food, arts and craft supplies, as well as household goods and toiletries.

Students in the class have also been volunteering their time a couple days a week to tutor school-aged children at Emmaus.
