This week the whole of Year 9 participated in Project Impact’s Wrapathon, in partnership with Light Up a Life.
Eight secondary schools across London took part in the charity initiative wrapping up 2,000 chocolate gift boxes to give to care workers and hospital staff as a gesture of gratitude.
Project Impact is a youth volunteering organisation that encourages young people to volunteer in their own free time and empowering them to make a difference through social action. Other initiatives run by Project Impact include cooking weekly meals for the homeless, shopping and collecting essentials for food banks and tutoring English to underprivileged children.
They also offer interfaith and wellbeing volunteering opportunities, including a planned wellbeing walk across London in 2022.
Chayli Fehler, Director of Project Impact said, “We are delighted that JFS is joining our school-wide initiative and that the students have used their time to show their appreciation to others around them, being grateful for what they have.”
Year 9 student Dan said, “Participating in this activity was truly inspiring. I felt like we were a part of something much bigger than ourselves for such an important cause.”
