KI_makedifference4During the week of October 24-27, Kittrell Job Corps Center students joined millions of youth across the county to host several Make A Difference activities.

Students mentored the kids at the Franklin Vance Warren Head Start Center. They assisted the Disable American Veteran with its fundraiser held at the Henderson Golden Corral, where they collected $136.75. The funds will assist local veterans with their rent and utilities.

Students prepared and served lunch to the homeless and needy at the ACTS Soup Kitchen. They joined the community to establish and clean up a park, working alongside  Henderson City Council member Melissa Elliott, Henderson Police and Sheriff Department staff and the Henderson Fire Chief. Students from the construction trades build picnic tables and benches, planted flowers and applied mulch.

As a result from the Park clean-up, students were interviewed by a reporter from the Henderson Daily Dispatch and made the front page. Students also volunteered to run booths at “Henderson Head Start Center” for their Fun-Festival.
