Students perform service for Children’s Justice Center

Dale Thompson

Of the Record staff Jeremy Ranch students are helping children to have a better year in 2006.

The after-school program at Jeremy Ranch, Camp Hawk collected donations for the Children’s Justice Center in Heber. They began during the first week of the month and continued until the 21st when students were let out for the holiday break. Pat Berg, after-school program coordinator at Jeremy Ranch will drop the items off at the center.

"They help kids that are abused and come from domestic violence situations," Berg said.

She read an article about the Children’s Justice Center and thought it would be an excellent charity project for her students and, "something different from the regular food banks."

Camp Hawk collected a variety of helpful items such as blank video tapes and colorful fleece blankets. "They also give the kids snacks when they come in so we collected juice boxes and other types of snack items," Berg said.

In addition to accumulating items that will be used throughout the year, Camp Hawk helped address several hundred Christmas Cards that were sent out by the Children’s Justice Center. They stuffed and sealed the envelopes before sticking on an address label. "The kids really enjoyed addressing the Christmas cards," Berg said.

Camp Hawk is glad to be giving back to the community. "I think they were excited to be able to help and do something for the other kids," Berg said.
