Twin County United Way and Clarkston High School partner
to promote volunteerism on Oct. 20
Clarkston High students will include volunteer service in Homecoming activities
CLARKSTON, WASH. –Twin County United Way and Clarkston High School (CHS) are teaming up to get local students excited about volunteering. Friday, Oct. 20 is Clarkston High’s Student Day of Caring which provides an avenue for students to engage in brief volunteer service projects. Incorporated with this year’s Homecoming activities, nearly 100 students have signed up to volunteer.
The Twin County United Way conducts annual Days of Caring to promote volunteerism with businesses and schools. Student Days of Caring are intended introduce students to volunteering and encourage students to continue to volunteer throughout the year and into the future. Today, the students are giving back to the local community by participating in street clean up. Donning red Live United T-shirts, the students will be picking up litter from streets and sidewalks near the school, in surrounding neighborhoods, down 6th Street and to Bridge Street.
New Clarkston High School principal, Doug LaMunyan, said, “We appreciate the opportunity to work with the United Way and have our students give back to our amazing community. Our school has always been supported and it is nice to provide an opportunity for our students to give back to Clarkston residents and business owners. It’s an opportunity to show our school and community pride in an easy way – picking up litter from our streets.”
Student volunteers will gather at Clarkston High School in the student parking lot at 9:50 a.m. for street and block assignments. The volunteer project is estimated to take approximately an hour and a half.
Sponsors making Student day of Caring events possible include Lewis Clark Credit Union, McDonald’s, Dutch Bros Lewiston, Lewis Clark Chamber of Commerce, LC Crew, Village Center Cinemas and ArtBeat.
