Erie Students Celebrate Global Youth Service Day

Posted: Updated:

Erie students joined their peers around the world, to help their neighbors here at home.

Today is Global Youth Service Day, and thanks to the work of local students, in Erie it's also "Homelessness Awareness Day." They received a proclamation from the Mayor making it official.

200 students worked on service learning projects around the city, including a homelessness fair at Pfeiffer- bBurleigh School.

They offered canned goods, hygiene products and free health screenings to people in need.

Service is an invaluable part of education outside the classroom, to give kids a new awareness of their community.

LECOM, Smith's and other local organizations donated their time and services to the day as well.
