Spanish class volunteers at NF Community Charities ROSWELL, Ga. — On Saturday, Oct. 19, a group of Chattahoochee High School students volunteered at North Fulton Community Charities in support of the organization’s 2013 Holiday Program. The students, all juniors and seniors, are currently enrolled in Blake Stetson’s AP Spanish class and saw the weekend as an opportunity to put their grammar skills to the test. “I was so proud of my students today. People don’t really understand how intimidating it can be to speak a different language and use it in the real world; you’re put on the spot. I think it’s a good show of character to see all these teenagers come out on a Saturday morning and step out of their
comfort zones for a greater cause,” said Stetson, who has been teaching Spanish for nine years. The students were assigned to work as gift consultants on registration day, offering instructions to the clients for how to receive winter coats for their children, along with a Thanksgiving meal and some Christmas gifts. “It always surprises me to see just how many volunteers we receive on a regular basis,” said Eden Purdy, the program director at NFCC since 2010. “It’s a blessing to see how the community rises to meet the needs of these folks for the holidays.” Visit www.nfcchelp.org for more information. –Julia Potapoff
