2020 D95 Gives Back Initiative
Although our 2nd Annual D95 Gives Back Initiative in honor of National Volunteer Week (April 19-25) was more virtual this year, it was no less inspiring! It was wonderful to see the great things our D95 learners did/are doing to give back!
What talent! Another way to give back? Lift the spirits of those around you! Check out this awesome video by the LZHS Malin sisters who created this at the beginning of the quarantine in order to give people a reason to laugh.
WOW! MSN 7th grader Jacob and his mom Heather are using their home 3D printer to make ear savers, bands for face shields, and masks with replaceable filters! Want to help? Email firstname.lastname@example.org.
How does the Isaac Fox Vance Family give back? By making cookies for and “chalking” their neighbors who first responders, work at hospitals, or work at grocery stores. How thoughtful!
Here’s another way to give back! Check out this awesome chalk art by the Looper and Conrad families. Spreading joy, encouragement, and a PSA!
MSN Connect, a PTO initiative connecting kids, community and kindness, exemplifies giving back! They’ve made lunches for PADS, made activity kits for hospitalized kids, volunteered at a Senior center, and so much more! Inspiring!
