FCSLA In the Community: Join Hands Day

Branch S161, Youngstown, OH: Join Hands Day and Random Acts of Kindness

Senior Branch 161, FCSLA, Youngstown, Ohio, and Holy Family Elementary School group, ARK (Acts of Random Kindness) joined hands to beautify the school grounds on Friday, May 17, 2013.

President of S 161, Virginia DeLuca, her husband, Fred, and S161 Financial Secretary, Bernie Demechko, observed as ARK members dug, hoed, planted and mulched plants. 

The ARK group, with Melanie Jones as Director, has forty members from grades six through eight. They meet monthly to plan community projects and sponsor field trips to broaden their knowledge of the community. The assistant of the Ark group is Tina Kali.

Senior Branch 161 donated the money to purchases the shrubs and flowers that were planted. Last year the same group joined together and completed a similar project at the Poland Youth Soccer Field.

ARK projects this past year included making fleece blankets for the Neo-Natal Unit at Saint Elizabeth Hospital. They made and sent larger blankets to military patients at Walter Reed Hospital in Washington, D.C. They have baked bread for distribution at Sojourner House (Domestic Abuse Program) and have assisted at Sacred Heart Kitchen for distribution of food to those in need.
