In a time when there is a lot of complaining done about the apparent entitlement and apathy of the next generation, a group of students prove that actions do speak louder than words.
On Wednesday, May 17, over 50 students from Pinkerton Academy divided their efforts among eight Derry organizations to provide assistance in the form of yard work, filing, painting, and assisting with elementary classes and the elderly in the Youth Day of Giving Back.
An impending move to a new location this summer isn’t slowing down Salvation Army Lieutenants Katie Mayes and Katheryn Bender from making plans to continue to help the greater Derry community this summer.
A “For Sale‚” sign sits in front of the Folsom Road building that they have been in since 2000. They don’t own the site and the current owner is looking to sell, forcing the church to relocate. Ideally, they would like to stay in Derry’s downtown since 80 percent of the people they serve come from that area.
