CGD peer helpers recognized for their hard work

CGD middle school students were recognized for the services they've performed for the community on Wednesday, May 29 at the third annual Peer Helpers Service Awards.

Over the year, middle school students have collectively dedicated thousands of hours to more than 90 volunteer tasks. In a range of activities that include everything from babysitting and walking dogs to serving food and cleaning up, the kids volunteered their time in ways that benefits people in need around the community. Some activities, like Christmas caroling at the care center, might merely bring some joy to somebody's life. While others, like helping purchase clothing for a family that had lost all of their possessions in a fire, have made a real impact.

Along the way the kids have raised a significant amount of money that will be spread across various charities, including veteran flights, meals for kids, and senior citizen programs.
