Jake completed his community service through multiple years of volunteering with the Little Saint Nick Foundation. He decided to take on this project during his free time and he has been named the Chapter Leader for New York State. Little Saint Nick is a foundation dedicated to easing the fear and anxiety of children in local hospitals. Every month for the last two years, Jake helped pack 850 gift bags containing a stuffed toy, coloring books and crayons for children. The first Friday of every month, Jake and his siblings dress in costumes and deliver boxes filled with gift bags to Cohen’s Children’s Hospital and the Winthrop Emergency and Recovery Department.

Max and Tyler completed their community service project of "Building Bookshelves to Help Elders." They contacted a contractor who was willing to assist in the building of the bookshelves, located a business that donated the wood for the project, and found a nursing home and rehabilitation center that was in need of the bookshelves. They visited local libraries and acquired over twenty large print books to go on the bookshelves. “We helped make people’s lives a little bit better by just putting in some of our time. Imagine what we could do with more people, and more time.”
Mia completed her community service project, "African Library Project." She took on this project during her free time over spring break. She chose an organization to assist, planned out all of the details of how she would collect one thousand books, and set up a GoFundMe page to cover the shipping costs of all of the books to a school in Africa. Mia has a true desire to make a difference in this world.
