Sandwich High School (SHS) Students are assisting Fox Valley Older Adult Services (FVOAS) on a regular basis with mailings, library organization and other important tasks.
Teachers, Katie Trupiano and Jo Ann Minter, accompany students one afternoon a week to FVOAS to train and guide them in various tasks.
The students are experiencing many aspects of a working Senior Center along with getting to know FVOAS volunteers, staff and participants.
The dedication of these students to the task at hand is an inspiring story of young people assisting the older generation.
