Tristan Kono- Treasurer

 

What is your school and grade? Also, how long have you been involved with H4H?

Rolling Hills Middle School  7th grade. I have been volunteering for Hands4Hope for 7 years now.  

 

Why did you join Hands4Hope?  

My parents and brothers were all volunteering so I wanted to help out too.

 

How has Hands4Hope helped you in school, with your friends and family, and in life?  

Hands4Hope taught me that not everything is about me and that there is always someone less fortunate than me. Like when I'm sad or mad, I think about what other people like the homeless people or people that are sick are going through, and it helps me feel grateful and lucky for what I have.  The Hands4Hope Club has taught me leadership skills like leading group activities and talking in front of crowds. I really like my leadership group. I have some friends in the club which makes it more fun and I get to meet new people.

 

What has your experience been like since joining?

I have helped the homeless, donated to the hospitals and families in need, and after I help them, I always feel good about myself.   My favorite outreach is the homeless outreach. We make lunches for homeless people and drive out to Sacramento and serve them. I like it because I feel more connected with the people around me and I like talking with them.  They always say thank you and God bless you and it shows how thankful they are. Sometimes people tell me jokes and its really funny. I also like volunteering at the blanket making. I work with my friends to make blankets for the Winter Boutique . . . and we get pizza and stuff.

 

Is there anything else that you would like to add about your experiences with Hands4Hope?  

Right now, we are raising money for Shriner's children's hospital which is a charity hospital.  I work with my friends designing posters, planning fundraisers, and playing group games. I hope we can raise as much money as possible.  I hope that other people will become more aware of people less fortunate than us so that there are fewer people who need our help.

What is your school and grade? Also, how long have you been involved with H4H?

I go to Rolling Hills Middle School and I've been with H4H since the beginning of 7th grade.

 

Why did you join Hands4Hope?

I originally joined to get volunteer hours but quickly learned it’s such a fun group. I always have a great time during our meetings.

 

How has Hands4Hope helped you in school, with your friends and family, and in life?

H4H has helped me to be confident in myself and to know that I can actually help my community.

 

What has your experience been like since joining?

My experience has been great so far.  I've learned there is no shortage of organizations we can help out with.

 

Is there anything else that you would like to add about your experiences with Hands4Hope?

I look forward to joining the H4H Club next year at Oak Ridge.
