For this month's Youth Spotlight, we selected siblings, Jeffrey and Anna Hash, who serve as President and Vice President of their Hands4Hope Club at Herbert Green Middle School.
To anyone thinking of getting involved with Hands4Hope, Jeffrey “wants them to know that we do make a difference and by joining you can help the community.”
We love seeing Hands4Hope making a difference in the lives of our youth and we anticipate seeing more of this dynamic brother-sister duo in years to come!
Lori Whittle, Hands4Hope Education Program Coordinator for the Herbert Green Middle School Service Learning Club, had this to say about Jeffrey & Anna:
Anna Hash, the youngest club president in all the clubs this year, is caring, dependable, and present. She leads her peers using great organizational skills and attention. She and her brother, Jeffrey, are inspirational and a joy to work with.
Jeffrey Hash leads with dependability, interest in discovery, and future thinking that leads their project into the planning and action phase of their club's projects.
They will be a duo to watch and follow as they grow!
