Good Clean Fun
PEAK recognizes the incredible privilege it is to be in a position to give back with our time, energy, and resources. Every year, PEAK scholars and mentors join together for a service project in the Chicago community. This year, we spent a Saturday morning lending a hand at St. Helen elementary school.
Several PEAK scholars and Holy Trinity students went to St. Helen and have a connection to the school and its staff. The school enrollment has increased rapidly, which is exciting! However, this also means an increase in work for the small building maintenance staff and teachers. Our group was able to complete several weeks' worth of work in just a few hours, all while building community between PEAK scholars and mentors.
Thank you to Big Shoulders for organizing a day for us to give back, and thank you to St. Helen for allowing us to serve you in this way!
