Carver's "Perfect 10" Keystone Club Impacts Homelessness
December 17, 2013
For the past 3 months the "Perfect 10" Keystone club at Carver has made a conscious effort to positively impact homelessness in our city. It all started when Mr. Rodrick Johnson (Keystone advisor) and the members of Keystone came up with the idea to collect men's clothes, coats, and blankets for the homless due to the ensuing cold winter months. The entire Carver Staff, parents, and members all contributed to the clothes drive.
Keystone member personally deliverd these items to homeless people living in tints under the bridge where the interstates I-75/85 intersect with I-20. Keystoners were surprised to find out that there were more homeless women living under the bridge than men. After the first visit, keystoners promised to return with more clothes for women and other items. 2 weeks later, the members kept their promise and returned with hot meals of Thanksgiving dinner and more clothes for men and women. The members enjoyed talking with them and hearing their stories of previous success and hardship.
Most recently, during December, Keystone made another trip to the bridge where they delievered over 25 pairs of shoes, more coats, blankets, and clothes, as well as hot meals to all of the people living there. "Perfect 10" is truly learning the value of giving back to their community and they are certainly enjoying it. Way to go Keystoners!
