With the snow that fell two weeks ago melted, our students were back in action across the nation with service projects. Here’s an update from some of our regions:
San Francisco: Bay Area youth spent Saturday learning about human trafficking through a partnership with Girls Inc. They ended the day by raising awareness for the issue by writing chalk messages on sidewalks!
Chicago: Students rose early to distribute food from a pantry to those in need.
Detroit: At Detroit’s 2nd annual service party, students made friendship bracelets and cards of encouragement for homeless teens. Other students prepared for their school-building trip to Haiti in two weeks. Still others made catnip toys for cats at the Michigan Humane Society.
Philadelphia: buildOn students, along with regional ministries, served dinner to over 200 homeless individuals.
South Connecticut: Students enjoyed an indoor service fair where they made issues posters to hang at their schools and worked on other projects!
