Nicholas, Nathan, and David are eighth graders attending our Middle School. Part of completion of their eighth grade year here at the school, they are required to complete a community service project.
These three students are a few of the top students here in our school. Since they first entered the middle school, they have taken all the advance courses and have successfully moved forward throughout their years here. Their dedication to their academics, extracurricular activities, and community service has inspired many students. They are role models in the classroom and outside as well.
The three students have found a target issue in the city of San Diego, which is homelessness. Together, they have brainstormed ideas that would help these citizens who are homeless. In hopes of being funded, they would love to dedicate themselves to provide at least a little bit of peace in the city of San Diego. They believe that sometimes even just a little bit of happiness can go a long way and can make a huge difference in people's lives.
Working with these students, I have come to see the great compassion they have for the people of this community. They've worked together since the beginning of this school year to come up with ideas to help resolve issues that this community and many other communities face: homelessness. With the "medkit" that holds the supplies from this project, they envision happiness and a change of morale in these people's lives. These students understand that they are unable to provide "medkits" to every single homeless person in our community, but they believe that if they could bring happiness to at least 50 people, they could make a positive change. Like the saying goes "A little bit goes a long way"...
In Their Own Words
Our goal for our project is to help the homeless by donating a "medkit" to 50 different homeless people in San Diego. We will do this by getting donations from donorschoose.org. We then will go to our previous elementary school and give a mini-presentation then pass out fliers on the awareness of homelessness. It is sometimes depressing to see them on the streets with nothing. But if we can supply them with needed materials, we can improve their day, even if the supplies will not last forever.
To raise money for this project, we are going to reach out to our old elementary school and also raise money. We are going to go from class to class and give mini presentations to the students. We will also leave something in each room to collect money. Our goal is to raise awareness to younger students about the homeless people in their community. We think that most kids see homeless people and think of them as scary. Most of their lives just didn't go the way they wanted it to. We are just trying to raise awareness of these homeless people.
This project is beneficial and important because we will improve our community by helping the homeless. We will help them by giving out materials that will help make the days of some homeless people much better. We know that these supplies will not last forever, but even the littlest things still help.
