Community Volunteers are an important part of this grassroots effort to demonstrate good citizenship. These are only a few of William's friends he has met while fencing, taking art classes in the community, going to afterschool programs and volunteering in the community himself. He has also met many new friends just around town as he and his team of volunteers work to solicit donations and contributions for the walk.
Here William enjoys a moment of fellowship with friends from scouting. He is joined by scout leaders, cub scouts, boys scouts, and girl scout members to collect, count, assemble for the walk, and walk "the walk" to donate non-perishable food items and turkeys for Thanksgiving, Christmas, and beyond to his neighbors in need. Participants bring as many friends and family members as possible from young babies in wagons loaded down with the food to wonderful grandparents who attend and as role models.
Here William benefits from the comraderie and joy of working with his school mates on a team of citizens giving back to their community. Key Club, school aged teens and Communities in School members are an invaluable asset to this grassroots effort. This would not be possible without each and every type of supporter.
