Stanwood teens Make a Difference
Students in Val Schroeder’s senior English classes at Stanwood High School sponsored Make A Difference Day projects for the Oct. 22 national day of service.
More than 90 teens worked on 36 projects, which included doing chores for senior citizens, teaching young children about leadership, picking up litter, visiting children in hospitals, and various drives and fundraisers for homeless shelters, food banks, and animal and wildlife care centers, among other projects.
Many students plan to continue helping with these causes to complete community service hour requirements for their “Contemporary World Problems” and civics courses during the school year.
