On Monday, March 28th, Mrs. Bird’s service learning class and the student council took a bus up to Salt Lake and made kits at the Humanitarian Center for many different families, countries, or anyone that has gone through a natural disaster recently.
“It was fun!” said Andalyn Hall, an eighth grader at SJHS, “I liked being able to get out of school to do service.”
Service learning and the student council went up to the Humanitarian Center and were given a tour of it and then put to work in making different sorts of kits for people in need of them. There where three different kinds of kits: a newborn kit, school kit, and hygiene kit. Each of these kits where for different needs that people had.
Alex Valenzuela, an eighth grader at SJHS, said, “I liked the Humanitarian Center because I loved getting to serve others and seeing how much it would help. We watched a video, and I got to see what some of the kids go through. It motivated me to give service.”
