Twenty-four middle school students are participating in the
8th annual Summer Angels Service Camp held by Senior Citizens Inc.
The program matches students from Savannah with activities
that help seniors at various levels of need and in a variety of living
The itinerary includes yard work for senior clients, home
delivery of meals, craft projects and sing-a-long sessions.
"I think it really gives them a sense of pride and
accomplishment for their summer," said Summer Angels Program Director Caroline
Willoughby. "They're not just hanging by the pool or anything, they are
actually doing some service."
Willoughby has experienced that feeling herself. She
participated in the program as an eighth grader in 2006.
