SAWYER KLARP MAKES AN IMPACT

For his community service Action Project Sawyer Klarp, an 8th grade student at Rachael Carson Middle School, chose to volunteer at Project Lemonade and organize a donation drive. Sawyer started in July 2014 with volunteer hours at the store. He helped sort, organize and merchandise clothes. He also helped move boxes and tear down the store. Lastly, he sorted boxes and clothing at the storage unit.
 
For his donation event, he sent home flyers to all the students and emails to the parents requesting they bring in donations for the clothing boxes. With the support of his school Sawyer collected eight large garbage bags of donations. Sawyer said the greatest impact this project had on him was learning the needs of foster children (back to school clothes so they look like all the other kids and have confidence) and getting more people to donate to and be aware of Project Lemonade.
