What happens when you get 500 like-minded students together in the same room?
In a short 45 minute session students:
Wrote 250+ letters thanking our veterans for their service.
Wrote over 2,000 positive post-it notes to put on students’ lockers at school.
Created more than 100 non-skid socks for the elderly.
Decorated over 80 placemats to brighten the day of the elders that receive Meals On Wheels & designed over 165 holiday placemats for their holiday meals.
Colored and cut out 300 name tags to go with Christmas presents from the Senior Enrichment Center in Norwalk.
Made 15 tie blankets for the Project Linus Organization.
Helped Stein Hospice by putting over 300 pins on Veteran’s Day cards.
Made tissue paper flowers to give to our senior friends. Just a little bit of color in their rooms can bring a smile to their faces!
Made over 30 capes for the Capes for Courage Organization.
Our day kicked off with an amazing speaker.
We listened to Todd Gongwer, author of Lead for God’s Sake, share his passion for leadership and importance of being a leader in life.
In the afternoon we listened to
Tim Dorsey of Sandusky share his personal story of fight. It is all about attitude. Even when you are hit with the worst, you have to find the silver lining and focus on that!
