The YWCA Zone program has received a $400 grant from Service Nebraska to attain supplies needed for youth to participate in a service learning project April 26-28 in recognition of Global Youth Service Day.
Zone youth began the service project on January 21, in honor of Martin Luther King Day. They have been involved in multiple programs throughout the community creating a special awareness of how hunger affects the Hastings community.
The kids were able to visit various sites that serve meals to those inneed, and in April, they will be asked to service one of the sites thatfeed hungry Hastings residents.
The service site and volunteer hours will be determinedby the kids. They will also be asked to reflect on their experience in journals.
