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. Lastly, the Newton North Chapter worked with Cradles to Crayons, helping them to organize their warehouse. A huge thank you to all participating students!
Wellesley Stars & Brimmer and May Chapters held concerts in nursing homes on May 18th, June 6th, and June 8th. Thank you to all the students who worked to prepare themselves for these events and put a smile on someone’s face!
On December 14th and 18th, 2018, the Student Corps Chapters from Southern California teamed up to raise funds for the 2018 Big Brothers Big Sisters of Ventura County Holiday Angels Program. We raised over $2400 on the GoFundme from donations nationwide and over $700 from company donations. We were able to provide gifts to around 30 Holiday Angels, low-income students who are members of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Ventura County.
The donation was followed by an award ceremony for the PVSA with each medal given by Lynne West, CEO of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Ventura County!
Great job, Southern California!
On December 15th, members of Lexington High Chapter and LexiBright Chapter held a food drive. Over 20 students showed up and raised much more than previous years. All food will be donated to the Lexington Food Pantry. Awesome work students!
