Giving Back: Celebrating MLK Day
At Madison Square Boys & Girls Club, our members are always looking for new ways to serve their communities, become leaders amongst their peers, and make their neighborhoods more positive and safe. Last month, members from our Columbus Clubhouse decided to give back in celebration of Martin Luther King,Jr.
Last month, Clubhouse members from the Project Graduate program completed a day of service on MLK Day by visiting St. Barnabas Hospital and POTS in the Bronx. Members created and designed get well cards for the sick children admitted to St. Barnabas. During this process, the members researched different illnesses affecting youth, became curious about more ways they could help, and demonstrated genuine concern and compassion for the kids to whom they were writing.
On MLK Day, the members presented the cards to hospital administrators who were incredibly grateful for the act of kindness. Although, the members did not get to meet with the patients, they knew their impact would be felt throughout the hospitals. By aligning our members with the principles that make up our Good Character & Citizenship curriculum, we are able to continue to give back to our communities.
