International Volunteer Day: For Bennett's Sake

Casady Service-Learning YAC has selected our annual blood drive as the project for International Volunteer Day.  A YAC member delivered a KFC meal to Bennett and his family with a giant "Get Well Soon" poster made by our after school program children and teachers.

Bennett is at the Stem Cell Transplant Unit of Children Hospital.  He loved the chicken tenders and said that he soon will be able to get an artificial foot and he will be able to ride his blue bike!  Bennett loved the poster.  Blue is his favorite color.  Bennett is our everyday hero this week.
