Students encouraged to always take advantage of opportunities to serve community
An important part of high school is educating our students on how to be a productive and positive part of their community. We want students to experience community service as much as possible, as we believe caring for others is an important part of becoming an adult and being a good citizen.
The students were divided into two groups. The first group sorted and bagged stuffed animals to be sent to South Africa. The Mission receives $.15 per pound for the toys. This money is used to purchase items needed at the Mission.
Other students sorted through donations and stocked the shelves in the store.
Students were surprised at the number of people lining the street waiting to get into the store. Each family is allowed ten minutes twice a week to gather 25 pieces of clothing and 25 household items. People were running to gather their necessities. Imagine completing your shopping in ten minutes!
It was an eye-opening experience for our students. One can’t help but feel empathy for these people. When it was time to go, the students felt as if there was still more work to be done and asked if we could come back again.
Mission accomplished! :)
