Three Local Organizations
Meals on Wheels
For four years, I have worked for Meals on Wheels with my family. This has been a valuable experience because it has allowed me to learn so much about other people, particularly the elderly and less fortunate. It has given me an understanding of the importance of helping out in my community and I hope to continue this service as long as I am able.
Veterans of Foreign Wars
During my senior year of high school, I competed in the VFW statewide essay contest. My essay landed me an opportunity to attend a local meeting and speak to the veterans who were there. Something I am very proud of is my support for our country's military and I will continue to look for opportunities in the future to give back to them.
Greece Ecumenical Food Shelf
For the past several years I have volunteered for the Greece Ecumenical Food Shelf with my family. We have delivered food to those in need and have done shopping for the organization. This has taught me just how much effort goes into helping others and how everyone has a part to play whether it seems like it makes a difference or not.
