VCHS Volunteer Club has been advised by Mrs. Blaine for 15 years, and
during that time, has gained a considerable reputation around the surrounding
community. Event coordinators around the Hudson Valley know that they can turn
to the Volunteer Club if they need help. Just this year, 25 community
events have asked for the help of the club’s members. These teenagers babysit
children during events in the elementary schools, set up and clean up during
craft fairs, and help run fundraisers at Barnes and Noble. The members are required
to have a minimum of ten hours of service by the end of the first semester, but
many go beyond that, already having thirty or more hours under their belts. The
overall total amount of hours for the whole club is approximately 700 hours for
the current 67 members, all collected during a period of only three and a half
months. The members of this club are some of the most involved and dedicated
students, some even being selected to receive the Walden Women’s Club Youth
Community Service Award. These VCHS volunteers make us #VCProud.
