Forest Elementary hosts an all-school stacking day every year in November that is organized by Kim Ng. Ng is the physical education teacher at Forest Elementary and has been hosting this day for the past nine years.
They call it “Stacking for a Cause Day” and this year it took place on Nov. 14.
Everyone in the school practices speed stacking to help in breaking the Guinness Book of World Records. Last year the record was 635,000 stackers. This year the final number of stackers around the world was 638,668, a new record has been set.
Along with stacking speed stacks at school, Ng also sets up an opportunity for the families at Forest to give back to the community.
This year families brought in winter clothes, hygiene products, and food items to be donated to Mimi’s Mission. Mimi’s Mission is a Nonprofit located in Woodhaven that believes in giving families a “hand up” not a “hand out”.
Thanks to all the families that donated, Mimi’s Mission was able to provide clothing for several families in the community.
