Thank you!

This post is going to be mostly a thank you to our awesome teens at Hancock County Public Library and the Sugar Creek Branch, but it is also going to partly be a way for me to brag about the teens we have here.

This summer we decided to Build a Better World by dedicating some of our programs to community service projects. Due to our awesome teens, these programs were a hit!

These teens made pillowcases and craft bags for the children at Peyton Manning Children’s Hospital and helped local children practice reading. Thanks to their hard work and compassion, we were able to donate 55 pillowcases and over 200 craft bags!

So thank you, teen volunteers! This is truly awesome and you should be proud.

I know I am!

The Volunteer Opportunities

Building a Better World can also mean helping others, which is why we are having some programs where you can earn service hours.

Teens Read the Way: You can help children (age 3 to grade 5) keep their reading skills over the summer by reading with them and doing activities each week. At the end of the 6 weeks, those who volunteered will not only receive signed volunteer service hour letters but also a reward party with pizza and a movie.

Make Hospital Pillow Cases for Kids: Make fun pillow cases for kids in Peyton Manning Children’s Hospital at St. Vincent. Not only will it be fun and bring some joy to a kid, but it will also earn you service time and you get to learn some basic sewing.

 

 

So come join us over the summer for fun programs, reading, and prizes!
