Want to take part in an activity that is not only fun but promotes social action and awareness? Join in this recycled paper beading project that supports Reason2Smile (R2S). R2S is a registered nonprofit organization in New York that helps support the Jambo Jipya School and Children's Home in Mtwapa, Kenya. Pick up your kit at the Northport building Teen Center by October 17. Upon making a bracelet, email a picture of your creation to teenvolunteer@nenpl.org by October 31. Then you can gift it to someone in need of a smile. One hour of community service credit will be awarded. You may choose a maximum of three volunteer opportunities in addition to Teen Advisory Board.
