Washington DC high school students, Josh Kennedy-Noce and D’Mani Harrison-Porter attended a leadership camp a year or so ago and left inspired to start a community service club for their school.
One of the club’s activities is Sandwich Days, where teens gather to make sandwiches for homeless people and they have made thousands! As temperatures got chillier, the kids decided to collect and distribute coats. Not content with that gesture alone, they wrote kind, encouraging notes and placed them in the pockets for the recipients to find later. We may say it’s the thought that counts but these kids showed us that action is powerful.
