GNBVTHS students have gifts to give!
But wait … there’s more!
Lead by Michael Perreira and Alex Pinarreta students at the Greater New Bedford Vocational Technical High School and members of the Business Professionals of America (BPA) Chapter’s officer team held a donation drive to gather clothing, toys, and books for children ages three to twelve. The students and staff at the school generously donated many items which were delivered to GiftsToGive.
Members of the officer team include; Cassandra DaSilva, Rebecca Young, Elijah Richards, Sade Sinous, and Justin Guimont. Chapter advisors include; Jennifer Carreiro, Cathy Chace, and Maciel Pais.
CEO and Founder of GiftsToGive, Jim Stevens said – “For high school students to help in this way is positive and hopeful. For young people to understand giving and service – they need to practice and experience it. These students and administrators were able to help 30 local children in-need, with the items they collected! For the educational staff of this chapter of BPA to understand that an important part of corporate citizenship is connecting to community, is wonderful. What a meaningful service-learning experience they’ve offered their students. We think the Greater New Bedford Vocational Technical High School ROCKS!
