CLINTON – On April 29, students at Prince of Peace College Preparatory offered more than 300 hours of service for 19 area non-profits.
Students spent the day doing activities including planting trees for the Sawmill Museum, cleaning out storage rooms for the United Way of Clinton County and doing yard work for the YWCA of Clinton.
“It is important to teach students to give back to their community,” said Sharon Roling, Prince of Peace associate principal. “We hope to instill in them a sense of responsibility to others in our community. Our service day is a special day that our students look forward to. They work very hard and walk away feeling good about themselves. That feeling they get when they serve others is what will motivate them to continue to serve others over and over again.”
