Ten sixth graders and an eighth grader joined me tonight in community service at Cardinal Cooke. The residents had a blast spending time with the boys, sharing stories and playing games. In the photos we see SMcC and JC calling BINGO numbers, a group working with residents during the game, and TE imitating a perfect "host" on prize patrol.
The residents were totally taken by the boys' charm and wit. With the help of many, including parent liaison Medill Harvey, the boys' teachers, and Adam Chazen at Cardinal Cooke, we are able to resch out and serve the greater good. Reaching out to the community by giving of our time is important.
The boys volunteer for this program after school hours and must continue to meet their homework and all other obligations. It is a true giving of themselves.
