Queen of Apostles Students get involved in their Community

November 2014

The 7th grade students at Queen of Apostles School spent the day helping out at Hope Services.
The mission of Hope Services is to improve the quality of life for people with developmental disabilities. Students rolled up their sleeves alongside the participating Hope members and provided assistance with production services such as labeling, packaging, sorting, assembling and metering.
Students also found that there are similarities between themselves and the participating members. As they chatted with the members, some discovered a common love of Starbucks frapuccinos and animé characters.
One student stated that as he worked making boxes, he and one of the participating members discussed the merits of animé Sailor Moon.
“The opportunity the students are afforded by volunteering at Hope Services is an experience you can’t re-create within a classroom setting. They experience patience, teamwork, and a deeper appreciation for the world around them and their ability to be a vital role in it!” Stated 7th grade teacher Brian Yocke.
