President’s Volunteer Service Award

In Connecticut, The Weston Forum is reporting on Weston Middle School seventh grade students Danielle DeCanio and Sydney Fain, who have been awarded the 2009 President’s Volunteer Service Award for completing over 50 hours of voluntary service, individually.

For the award, both girls assisted their Girl Scout troop in collecting diapers and backpacks for the Community Closet facility in Bridgeport. Separately, Danielle helped run two school food drives, while Sydney participated in “The 30-Hour Famine,” an international youth movement to raise awareness and money to help eradicate world hunger. Two fantastic examples of community minded individuals indeed - Congrats to both Danielle and Sydney!
