Through the years of 2018 and 2019, the volunteers of Student Corps’ NorCal chapters participated in a variety of events and long term goals to help families in need and spread awareness on different causes. With our partnership with Big Brothers and Big Sisters of the Bay Area (BBBS), the students collectively raised 500 dollars to donate in the form of a scholarship to a child in need. This included a year long bottle recycling program that contributed to the majority of the money raised. Additionally, in both the years of 2018 and 2019, the students of our NorCal chapters joined BBBS in their annual Bowl for Kids Sake event to help celebrate the year long fundraiser. Alongside this partnership, many more individual events were held. Our students joined the 2nd Harvest Food Bank in helping sort food for people in need, helped the Stanford Asian Liver Center to spread awareness on HBV, and many more events that heavily benefitted the community in a vast variety of ways.
The Wellesley High School Chapter students have been working hard this August with tutoring! They work with other children in China by teaching them English. These Student Corps students have shown incredible patience and dedication to helping others. Thanks for setting a great example!
On January 19th, our Massachusetts students celebrated Chinese New Year with the community, by volunteering and fundraising. Students worked throughout the day, helping with many different tasks, while still continuing to raise money for burnt victims. Even when exhausted, the students kept the happy spirit up. Thank you to the 40+ students who helped out!
On April 13th, the Wayland High Chapter assisted in cleaning up their town. A while later, the Wellesley Stars Chapter helped Cronk’s Rocky Woodland Small put up flags for the season.
