Service and Volunteering in our Area

 Great story on local guys helping out.

The Orjales brothers of Arlington made their first shipment of 30 soccer cleats to India on Saturday. They have plans to ship to Mozambique, Macedonia, and Nigeria. “We’re sending, I think, 60 pairs of cleats to Haiti,” Lucas Orjales said. Not bad for three high schoolers and a project they started in August. http://arlingtonmercury.org/articles/washington-lee-brothers-collect-%22your-cleats-for-bare-feets

You can help out too! there's a Volunteer Fair Oct. 27 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Central!  

Did you know that 4.4 million teenagers dedicated 377 million hours of service in the U.S. in 2010?

Did you know that teens who volunteer say that they developed leardership and future job skills, became more patient, and learned to understand people who are different from them?

Want to learn how you can positively impact the lives of your fellow community members?

Come to the Teen Volunteer Fair and meet representatives of organizations who would love to have your help! Opportunities are available in Arlington and beyond for teen volunteers to make a difference in our community.

 Check it out and get involved!
