Our project called PACK’ed (Prepared, Assembled by Caring Kids) by YAC (Ionia County’s Youth Advisory Council) took place on April 20, 2016. The YAC, a youth led organization that engaged in direct service activities benefiting IM Kids 3rd Meal. During the school year, IM Kids 3rd Meal provides just over 471 sack dinners to food insecure children in Montcalm and Ionia Counties Monday through Friday. YAC students were put into groups and then completed stations; making trail mix, balling melons, repackaging snack foods, decorating bags, making sandwiches, and packing meals at the IM Kids 3rd Meal facility. Prior to our direct service day, the YAC members collected food items at their individual schools to bring as a donation to IM Kids 3rd Meal. The students enjoyed volunteering for their community and help feed food insecure children.
The Youth Advisory hosted the 5th Annual Statewide Teen Driver Safety Conference. Check out the Strive 2 Arrive Alive video from wotv4women.com!
