TC Collects for Kids in Jamaica

At our September meeting, Teen Council members unanimously voted to help Mr. Harold Burnett of Teaneck who this summer began to gather, with assistance from the Wei Family, gently used items for children affiliated with Class House on the Dry Harbor Mountain in Jamaica, a youth enrichment center run by the Reverend Fitzroy Thomas.

Class House children have few possessions to call their own. Many of them grow to adulthood without ever owning a small toy car or a doll. Backpacks are largely unknown to school children and even shoes are scarce. See a list of items they can use.

If you have items you'd like to donate for the collection please contact Kimi Wei at 201-475-1854 or send an email.

The Passaic County 4-H Youth Development Program and St. Paul's CityServe Program teamed up on a 5 week service and learning program this past summer titled, CityServe. In CityServe, 50 youth from Passaic County devoted 5 weeks of their summer vacation to serving the community of Paterson, NJ.

Bergen and Passaic Counties Teen Council president, Ivan W, and member Jeremy D, both age 17, were the 4-H teen leaders for the 4-REEL movie-making program run under the auspices of the Passaic County 4-H Office. . . . more
