Volunteering at Enka Middle School

Lindsay Stalowy is entering her second year as a volunteer at Enka Middle School. Here's what she said about the experience:

"Volunteering as a Mentor at Enka Middle School has been delightfully rewarding for me," said Stalowy. "I meet with my mentee just once a week but the lives of these children can change dramatically in such short periods of time. She has opened my eyes to the struggles that young girls experience in our community."

Spotlight: Swati Patel's Family Supports Students

Every year our School Supply Drive gets bigger and bigger. Last year, as a result of this drive, 1,350 elementary and middle school aged children received a fully stocked backpack and extra materials were sent to local teachers. This year we reached a record setting 1,754! This is important for each child's experience on the first day of school but also for their families who are often struggling to keep food on the table or a roof over their head.
