H2O Summer 2015 at the Westerly Apartments

Help to Others is a service-learning program for middle and high school students in Lakewood. H2O engages youth in volunteer work, empowering them with the values of belonging and contributing to their community. We here at the Bowl have had the pleasure of having the kids work with us and the residents at the Westerly bagging and tagging pet food for distribution, for a few years now. These kids work hard to help our community and learn about other organizations by helping them. These photos are from our get-together in June and August. Keep an eye out for these kids, they work hard all year!
