“Service to others is the rent you pay for your own room here on earth” Muhammad Ali
Our junior high students participated in their 2nd service project of the year. Through Compassion Network – an organization committed to serving those in need representing all faiths, economic and ethnic groups – they were assigned to help some of our elderly in the community with some yard work. The students were split into different groups and visited different homes to get the job done. They pulled weeds, picked up dry and dead leaves, cleaned patios and windows and much more. They also presented a small gift to the tenants to show their appreciation and love for our elderly and for sharing some words of wisdom with them.
