April Watkins is on the left, the students leaders of EarlyAct, starting third from the left is VFW President of District 3 Brenda Wardrip, local VFW President Cari Gardner, and Ayesha Sabree Program leader.
If you visit their website you'll see that EarlyAct aims to teach its members:
|During the presentation, Brenda Wardrip and Cari Gardner answered many questions from the kids. One was from Isabella asking where the blankets were going to go, and the answer was to the VA hospital in Loma Linda.|
In total, there were about 100 of her fellow students that helped make the ten tie blankets. The idea was to help the veterans, so that "they could get better, and to stay warm when it's cold," she told me.
It took about four months to complete the project and they worked on it after they'd finished their homework at THINK Together.
Victoria told me that she likes being in the EarlyAct club because it makes her feel good to help others.
