PROJECT DESCRIPTION:  For my Mitzvah project, I collected school supplies for The George Washington Carver Community Center in Norwalk. The Carver Center offers after-school tutoring for underprivileged children. Students come to the Carver Center daily to get help with their work from school and are given many other opportunities such acting, dancing, singing classes and field trips. I was inspired by the work that my older sister, Emily, has done with this organization over the last five years, and I want to volunteer at The Carver Center in the future. My project has taught me how grateful I am for what I have and that I should try to help others that may not have what I have.
