Social club gets involved in community through volunteering
LAUDERDALE COUNTY, Miss. (WTOK) - The Debs Social Service Club is volunteering in the community this week. Members were at Southeast Middle School Monday helping with painting projects.
They painted picnic tables, the railing inside the school and fencing outside the school. One of the advisors to the club said it’s important for these students to get out and volunteer.
“It gives these young ladies an opportunity to learn about their community number one, but it also gives them a time where they start building those leadership skills they need to be able to serve in their community as they get older. We’re trying to teach a foundation now as they’re younger students, so when they’re actually in the adult working force, they’re still eager to participate in community activity,” said Lesa Smith.
This is the Debs last week of volunteering before their installation ceremony this Sunday.
