CUMBERLAND, Md. (AP) - Allegany County public school students are learning to recycle Christmas cards in a charitable way.

The school system said Tuesday that seventh-graders at Mount Savage Middle School have delivered to a Frostburg nursing home more than 100 cards refashioned into wreaths and ornaments.

Students at several other schools wrote poems to accompany cards they sent to local veterans and active-duty service members.

The project was proposed and funded by LaVale resident Prabhat Sandhir (pruh-BAHT’ san-DEER’). Sandhir says she hopes that by doing little things from the heart, the children will learn the value of helping others.

Coordinator Kara Kennell says card collection will continue through January to provide a stockpile for similar projects next year.
