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.
