Potterville HS Homecoming Community Service

POTTERVILLE, Mich. (WILX)-- News 10's morning anchor Lora Painter talks with students at Potterville High school where they are turning their homecoming into community service.

Liz Sell, a Potterville junior, said, "Our community is like a family. They give to us a lot and it's nice to be able to give back and show them we care as well and to do kind things to make people's days brighter."

Sell and her Potterville High School classmates go around their community, greeting local businesses, cleaning up parks, volunteering at churches, and baking cookies to give to fire departments and police stations. They also write notes of kindness for their classmates' lockers.

Breeanna Kubasczyk, a Potterville senior, said, "When we're out in the community it gives business owners and just people that live in our town an opportunity to know us better as people."

Valerie Mcmaster, a Potterville senior said, "It shows that we care about them and that we're thankful that they're helping us... Having the community support is really nice."

After homecoming ends, students start preparing for various other community service events, such as a blood drive and a holiday food drive.
