Do you volunteer? Why not get credit for it?

Youth across the EUP dedicate their time and energy to improve the community every day. Here are some of the ways Students give back.

April 2015 - Global Youth Service Day

Students at Sault Area Middle School held a food drive in the first half of April to collect non-perishable food items. Then members of the WOWJr. and Students United got together to use the collected food to assemble food boxes to help restock a local food pantry. The students were able to assemble 25 food boxes that were collected by the Salvation Army to distribute to area families.

January 2015 - MLK National Day of Service 

Students from Gros Cap School in Moran Township went out in St. Igance to shovel snow for seniors and veterans who were struggling to keep up with snow removal. Twelve students, along with three teachers helped clear snow for twelves households.

November 2014 - Chippewa County Thanksgiving

The Sault Area Middle School and the United Way of the EUP teamed up to help Chippewa County families enjoy a Thanksgiving dinner. The students held a food drive, along with the US Coast Guard, and Hoover Precision. On the 22nd, as part of National Family Volunteer Day, volunteers helped pack food baskets, with each one containing a complete Thanksgiving Dinner. Through the event food baskets were assembled for 65 area families.

 

September 2014 - 9/11 Day of Service

Students from Malcolm High School joined the United Way of the EUP and Hearthside Assisted living to hold a ceremony commemorating the events of 9/11. Students gave a presentation and took the opportunity to honor Hearthsides residents who have served in the military, and to recognize the many agencies that help keep our community safe.
