CHS Students Keep Dr. King’s Dream Alive

During the MLK holiday, students from CHS volunteered to serve alongside Young Leaders Academy and other partners at a project called Warm Hands, Warm Hearts. Monday marked the fourth year of the project to distribute blankets, coats, socks, scarves and soup to those in need in the community. Organized by the executive director of Young Leaders Academy, Ms. Tonya Robertson, the morning began with all the partners gathered inside Greater St. Luke Baptist Church for a prayer service and commemoration of the life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. The diverse backgrounds represented by all the volunteers provided a powerful witness of Dr. King’s dream that people in our nation would overcome divisions and work together in service of others. CHS has partnered with Young Leaders Academy for the past seven years in various projects and events. Our next event together will be be a meal and fellowship, followed by the CHS basketball game versus McKinley on January 30.
