SARATOGA SPRINGS — Team 8C at Maple Avenue Middle School recently participated in a Give Back Day to help show students the many ways they can give back and make an impact, both locally and nationally.

The day began with speakers Cliff Seguin and co-chair Mike Lehet from Operation Adopt a Soldier, as well as Project Lift program director Colleen Potter from the Franklin Community Center. The speakers spoke with students about their programs and the many ways students and their families can make a difference in their organizations.

Students then completed community service activities and experienced giving back firsthand. The team packed over 50 boxes for Operation Adopt a Soldier with goods donated by the school community, created 50 birthday bags for Franklin Community center, and designed more than 200 cards for The Wesley Health Community Center and for soldiers who are overseas. 

Throughout the day, students learned the importance of being civic-minded, and what they can do to make an impact in their communities.
