WHS’ Outreach Community Service Club encourages students to serve and help others through team service projects to help and improve the community and school with their contribution.

The main objective of the Outreach Club is to impact the community in a positive way, thus improving the living conditions of some people, helping others who do not have resources or giving joy to those who need it most. Everyone who wants and is willing to make the world a little better can participate in the club because all help is necessary.

 

“Anybody who would like to participate is more than welcome to assist, because outreach is a fairly small group and any help is greatly appreciated,” club sponsor and World History teacher Mrs. Nunn said.

 

The club helps others by doing inspiring acts of kindness towards the community, like fundraisers. In addition to helping those to need it, the Outreach Club also helps the people who participate in it.

 

“We see this as an opportunity to benefit the community first and foremost, but at the same time, we also grow and better ourselves by using our skills and passions in a selfless way,” Nunn said, while junior Ashley Oliver added, “I think it helps me grow as a person by teaching that even though we have little we can do for those who have none.”

 

People in Outreach Club are hard workers because, even if it is something voluntary, it requires a lot of dedication. But they love what they do so they are willing to devote part of their time helping others. The club has done many things during this month of October with which they have managed to get more than just a smile from the ones they have helped.

“We have provided the Special Needs students on our campus with an opportunity to decorate pumpkins for Halloween, which was a wonderful experience, along with face painting, just this month, and we are currently in the process of a Stuff the Bus drive,” Nunn said.

 

The club plans to do different things each month, they are always working and looking for ways to do something for the community. They have great plans for the future with which they will make people’s lives a little better and happier.

 

The Outreach Club helps the community by giving back and doing things such as helping the special needs kids decorate pumpkins and plan Easter Egg hunts for orphaned kids.” said Oliver, and Nunn said “We plan to bring gifts and Christmas carol for the elderly, we are also going to get donated hygiene supplies for center of hope in January.”

 

The Outreach Community Service Club is a group of people with great plans, willing to help the community doing everything in their power to improve it. With their contribution they are able to make a change in the community, if everyone got involved, as they do, great injustices could be changed globally. The world needs more people like the members of the charitable Outreach Club.

In conclusion, Nunn said the Outreach Club is about “Community service, and the needs of the school, our area, and the world.”
