The Rangely National Junior Honor Society took 12 eighth graders to Grand Junction to serve at the Grand Valley Catholic Outreach Soup Kitchen last month. Katie Toyn and Beth Scoggins chaperoned. The students were introduced to retired volunteers (including one server who taught the group how to yodel) and toured the Grand Valley Catholic Outreach Day Center, where homeless people can shower, do laundry and receive mail. The students also helped around the soup kitchen, rolling silverware, serving food and drinks and washing dishes.
The students left feeling like they made a difference in people’s lives and like the clients and other servers made a difference in theirs.
