A United Partnership

Ten Martinsburg high school students spent Tuesday, September 12, volunteering at the Catholic Charities WV’s Martinsburg office as part of the United Way of the Eastern Panhandle’s annual Day of Caring.
Emily Rudy, Grace Aulabaugh, Jordan Bohrer, Amelia Jenkins, Melanie Kamer, Brandon Mason, Kira Kackley, Paige Porter and Sam Slayden cleaned the kitchen, dusted cobwebs and swept bugs off the porch ceiling, washed walls, cleaned baseboards and windows, mopped floors, vacuumed carpets, cleaned the bathrooms, and pulled weeds. The also inspected, sorted, cleaned and moved toys for the children’s play area and helped with wrapping up from the annual regional fund raiser the previous night.
Not only did the students help out the staff, they also learned about what Catholic Charities does. As one student said, “I go by this building every day, but I never knew what happens there. Now I do.”
