District 189 students participate in youth service projects throughout the school year. Here are a few recent highlights:
- 21st Century Afterschool Program at Eastside collected over 60 items of donations for Hygiene Awareness Month benefiting Call for Help, Inc.
- Mason/Clark Middle School students collected canned food and other non-perishable items for residents of the Joseph Center, a homeless shelter for veterans in East St. Louis as part of their Veteran's Day service project
- Students from the Career and Technical Education (CTE) program helped support Breast Cancer Awareness Month
Kudos to all our youth for thinking about others, providing service and for valuing others!
