Student Highlight: Frank Yin

I had the privilege of discovering an incredible opportunity to collect backpacks and deodorant for refugee students, thanks to youth program advisor Ms. Xiaoli Chen of AACO Cleveland. My initial point of contact was Ms. Rogers, an administrator at Joseph M. Gallagher School. She provided valuable guidance on the specific items needed and collaborated with me to facilitate the transportation of donations to the school.

In my role as the Kiwanis Club, a volunteering organization at my school, I rallied my fellow classmates and leveraged the club's resources to launch a backpack and deodorant drive within our high school community. Coordinating this initiative posed challenges that demanded persistence and resourcefulness, ultimately contributing to my personal growth.

This experience has been transformative, teaching me the significance of effective appeal and promotion in driving donations. Witnessing the enthusiastic support from my peers and observing the positive impact our efforts had on communities in the Cleveland area was truly rewarding. I am grateful for the opportunity to make a meaningful difference and for the valuable lessons learned through this philanthropic endeavor.
