Service to the Community

Youth from across the MCH community are giving back by spending part of their summer on community service. Youth from the Waxahachie campus are serving at a local nursing home, helping with their school and even cleaning up their campus by picking up trash. Boys Ranch youth have volunteered to pick up trash in the Lake Waco area as well as some county roads around the Ranch.

The Waco campus youth have given their time to a wide variety of projects. However many homes have given a substantial amount of their time to help the local Salvation Army. Salvation Army representative, Christie Harper was very complimentary of their efforts.

"They are a great group," Harper said. "They have been a huge help to us. In fact, we sometimes have trouble keeping them all busy because they are such hard workers!"

Here are a few photos and a video of MCH youth and staff serving at the Salvation Army warehouse.

The girls work to sort and hang donated clothing to be sold in the Salvation Army store.

Way to serve, MCH!
