Global Youth Service Day Weekend

 Thanks to a grant from HERSHEY I was able to involve students in Global Youth Service Day.

We are so grateful to the HERSHEY corporation for their grant.

We had 83 volunteers delivering over 500 jigsaw puzzles to memory care facilities. The people living with Alzheimer's received a wonderful stimulating activity which may slow the progression of the disease. The student volunteers felt wonderful about distributing puzzles to help improve the lives of people living with Alzheimer's disease. They even volunteered to solve some of the puzzles with the residents!

  1. Hailey you are an inspiration giving voice to young caregivers everywhere. I am an adult family caregiver for my mom who has Alzheimer’s. Your care for your grandmother is important and loving work. I absolutely love your idea and participation in Global Youth Service Day! As a retired science teacher my students often participated. You are changing the world keep it up!
