Thank you Carrollton Miami Bridge Youth Club!
Claudia Rivera is an incoming 11th grader at Carrollton School of the Sacred Heart. A couple of years ago, during her 9th grade year, she participated in a service project at Miami Bridge where she and other young women had a birthday party for the Miami Bridge youth. During this visit, Claudia learned about Miami Bridge and was inspired to help, recognizing these kids were her own age.
During her 10th grade year, she founded the Miami Bridge Youth Club at her school. Her Vice President, Manuela Espinosa, and 29 other students join her to make up this club. After collaborating with staff at Miami Bridge, the Miami Bridge Youth Club organized a donation drive at her school. For one week, many of her peers donated sneakers, socks, and underwear for the youth at Miami Bridge. On June 8th, 2017, Claudia and her classmate, Caroline Hassun, stopped by the Miami Bridge to drop off the donations.
We are so grateful for young people like Claudia, Manuela, Carolina, and each member of the Miami Bridge Youth Club – who take the time to make a difference in the local community. Many thanks to all the students (and parents) at Carrollton for their generosity and service to Miami Bridge.
Keep up the great work!
