I have always been impressed by the creativity and empathy of many of our high school students. But these tangible examples of a desire to help other students and members of our communities in time of need, is exemplary. Kudos to all of the teens!
Keep up this spirit of outreach and social justice.

What great examples of Teen initiated and run programs.
They are all doing amazing work and I admire their unity and passion, well done!
Co-ordinating all these efforts virtually is no small endeavor.
Last week members of the Essential Heroes campaign delivered masks to CCAT in Fresno to support the farmworkers there, and the response was amazing!
The group is already hard at work making masks for O'Connor Hospital, Ravenswood Center in East Palo Alto, and workers in Half Moon Bay and Gilroy.

So impressed by the Teens in our Town!
