Eirene Chapter Ukraine Fundraiser – 4/2/22

On April 2nd, 2022, students from the Eirene Chapter held a fundraiser for the Dynamo Fencing Foundation — a local team focused on supporting the Ukrainian people forced to fight against the invasion and destruction of their homes. These students baked cookies to spread love and awareness for Ukraine throughout Boston. With their work, $245 was raised to fight for the peace and wellness of all. Amazing work per usual, and I urge students to also do their part in fighting against the inhumane actions of others!

North Kentucky Student Corps Face Mask Donation – 1/16/2022

On Sunday, January 16, 2022, around 1:30 PM, four students from the North Kentucky Student Corps chapter along with their parents arrived at StoryPoint Prospect, a senior living home. The students intended to donate 100 face masks, including 60 N95 masks, to the facility. Included with the donated masks were cotton masks which had been handmade by the students themselves. After meeting with the manager Mrs. Emily Peck, they went through all the necessary Covid checks.

Following the donation, the students and parents accepted a tour of the facility by Mrs. Peck. They were given a detailed description of the primary operations of StoryPoint Prospect while being able to see much of the facility. After the tour, the students discussed the possibility of volunteering for StoryPoint Prospect to help care for the senior residents.

Mrs. Peck was grateful for the proposal and welcomed all the students to sign up for volunteering service if the living home Covid regulation allows later. The North Kentucky Student Corps chapter members hope to volunteer for StoryPoint Prospect on a more regular basis in the near future.

Johns Creek Chapter – 11/23/2021

On a sunny November day, the Johns Creek Chapter students worked hard to clean up along the beach and lakeside trails in Lake Lanier.  From cigarettes to bottle caps, after getting cleaned, Lake Lanier was restored to its naturally beautiful state. Amazing work helping our planet!

Story from Johns Creek Chapter

This year, the Johns Creek Chapter has participated in many tutoring events for students in the local community and even those with learning disabilities. Tutors from the Johns Creek Chapters taught everything from core academic classes such as English and Math to valuable life skills in public speaking. Also, the chapter had fun events such as music performances to serve the elderly and kids with disabilities. Recycling events were also conducted to raise money for the Big Brothers Big Sisters of America organization, with scrap pieces of metal being traded in for money.
