On Sunday, March 15, Halle Fodor, Sammy Hajdu, DeeDee Doe, and Tori Doran volunteered to help the nonprofit organization called The Mute Swan. The project these girls worked on was called the Beautiful Baby Project. This project helps single, soon to be mothers who have decided to keep their babies despite the difficulties they may encounter. Together the girls assembled 25 gift baskets that contained some necessary and enjoyable baby products such as baby clothes, diapers, wipes, books, toys and more. These baskets were delivered to local moms the following weekend, and they were surely feeling blessed when seeing how much a group of people can impact their lives.
Senior Halle Fodor said, “I discovered how fun volunteering can be and it was gratifying to see how rewarding volunteer work can be even though I wasn’t directly given anything from it.” Volunteer work is a really good way to spend your free time, and Kenston strongly promotes this. Kenston offeres a service cord at graduation to those who complete 60 hours or more of volunteer work. Getting involved in nonprofits, such as The Mute Swan, is a great way to get involved and help out the local area. We encourage you all to strive to earn the service cord award and be proud of something special while walking across the stage on graduation!
