West Columbia, SC- Celebrating a school year spent together, the Boyz 2 Men club at East Point Academy planned a week of service and fun. The first “Chill We’re Almost to the End Week” included “Dress Like A Staff Member” day, the launch of the virtual “Real Men Read Library,” a day for rocking bow ties and hair bows, “Pastries for Parents” in carline, a “Rock Your Shades” day with a popsicle treat for students, and a community service project. For their service project, the young men created care packages for U.S. soldiers. Spreading the impact, students were able to invite a community friend to help with the care packages. “I am so thrilled about the progress the young men have made so far. They have proven to me they are about service to all mankind” remarked club sponsor Terrence Duggan.
One of the biggest undertakings of the week was creating the digital collection of community members reading stories. The volunteers created videos that discussed the importance of reading to their various professional fields. The club plans to add to the library throughout the year. Speaking of the club’s impact on the surrounding community, Duggan remarked, “The outreach displayed helped us to gain a few more members. Way to go Boyz 2 Men!” The library is located on East Point Academy’s YouTube channel at https://rb.gy/ehb803.
