Don’t Just Sit There
Don’t Just Sit There is a community service social action group for 8th grade - high school students. We meet once a month to look at the important issues facing our community and the world. DJST’s Adopt a Family project was successful last year as they were able to help 14 specific families through difficult times. DJST volunteers for soup kitchens at least once a month. DJST purchased food and raised awareness for Rachel’s Table helping with their shopping tournament. DJST had over 90 members last year from a variety of middle and high schools. Don’t miss out - get involved. You do not have to participate in every event. Some events need a few volunteers while others, such as, the Walks for causes, Adopt a Family Project and the Annual JCC Carnival need lots of volunteers. Join this year and help DJST participate in a variety of community service projects. We would like to start a mentoring program this year by starting a DJST JR group. DJST members donate $25 as a donation to help fund the charitable projects throughout the year. Come help DJST with its annual Adopt a Family project. Contact Amy Kimball, the teen director, for more information and help us help others!
