What is teens' summer hit? iPod? Try iServe.

October 16, 2007|By AL WUNDERLICH / Pulse Correspondent

About 80 teenagers from Catholic churches in Washington and Frederick counties recently went to different parts of Hagerstown to help others by volunteering.

The program, called iServe, was a two-day event organized by St. Mary Catholic Church. Teenagers stayed overnight at St. Mary's and worked for two days with Hagerstown-area nonprofit groups, such as The Salvation Army, Walnut Towers, Food Resources Inc., Holly Place, REACH and the Walnut Street Health Center.

Brooklyn Needy, 17, a junior at North Hagerstown High School, said, "My favorite part was delivering food to the houses with disabled people. It made me really appreciate what I have and how much people need help from great programs like iServe."

A youth minister gave a program on social justice in the world today and on what can be done to improve the respect have for each other.

Participating youth leaders plan to host iServe again next year. They expect more churches will participate and are looking for sites at which teens can make a difference.
