Students assist People to People
Last updated 5/3/2007 at Noon
Sometimes you answer the phone and on the other end is the offer of a gift, no strings attached. That’s just how it was last week for Don Kinner, manager at Fallbrook People to People Services (a nonprofit organization that provides free employment services for the community).
The person calling was Lori Kelvert, the coordinator/teacher for a group of home-schooled students in De Luz. The students had been given a project to do some volunteer work for their community. Since Lori drove by the little office of People to People on West Mission in Fallbrook every day, she thought she would give a call and offer the services of her students. It just so happened that the annual fundraising drive was about to be mailed. Don needed to have 1,500 letters folded, stuffed into envelopes and sealed for the mailing.
Last Friday, seven students came into the office to offer their services. People to People volunteer Rosemarie Lintner supplied the students with home-baked cookies and sodas while they worked. The project was completed in one day. Congratulations go out to the students for completing their project.
Our thanks to the students at Iowa Street School: Kevin Allenstein, Jason Allenstein, Trevor Kraus, Cameron Kraus, Sam McDaniels, Gabby Olivas and Marek Olivas.
There really are good phone calls sometimes. Thanks again to the students. The mailing was delivered to Fallbrook Post Office that same day.
