What have you done lately to help the community? Have you donated to a local food bank or to a cancer research fund?
Builder‚Äôs Club members have done both of these things and more. They‚Äôve helped with the Apple Squeeze in October when apples are pressed into cider. They‚Äôve helped with crafts at the Steilacoom Town Hall tree lighting ceremony in December, too. They also take part in community service projects.
Builder‚Äôs Club officers include: President, Jenifer Pitts; Vice President, Leah Meraugh; Secretary, Savannah Bowdish; and Treasurer, Elisa Campomanes. The Builder‚Äôs Club advisor is Charm Harris, a counselor at Pioneer Middle School.
“I have been in charge of Builder‚Äôs Club for six years, and I plan to do it next year.”
Builder‚Äôs Club meets every Thursday after school, and the officers lead the meetings. They do different activities at different places around the community.
Jenifer Pitts says, “Relay for Life will be my favorite project because it will be big and fun!” That event takes place in May at Mt. Tahoma High School. Participants can spend the night at the track and walk all night or as long as they want for the cause. The money raised goes to a national cancer foundation.
