ASPIRANTES VOLUNTEER DURING HOLIDAY SEASON

Aspirantes in Palm Beach County worked on giving back over the holiday break by volunteering their time at two local organizations. At Locks of Love, an organization dedicated to providing hairpieces to financially disadvantaged children suffering from hair loss due to any diagnosis, they sorted hair donations and wrote thank you cards to all who gave. On January 5, the middle and high school clubs also teamed up with the Palm Beach County Department of Environmental Resources Management to remove 250 pounds of trash during a volunteer event at High Ridge Scrub Natural Area. The students cleaned up the local nature reserve and learned how pollution impacts the native wildlife living in that area. The Aspirantes are looking forward to more opportunities like these to help others throughout 2012.
