Every quarter we have a service project at NTLA. For example during the holidays we raised money to buy gifts for the children at the Lena Pope Home. Each student from first grade and above had to raise at least twenty-five dollars. This quarter we went to an assisted living center and we played games with the some of the residents. We played games like chess, cards, and Scrabble. We also presented them with Valentine’s Day quotes on heart shaped paper that he had made during out leadership class. They were so sad whenever we had to leave. It was so fun to meet people new and make a difference in the world.
