Star Chavez, a student at Mammoth Elementary STEM School, collected a huge stack of diapers for Family First Pregnancy Care Center.

If you have ever thought, “I’m just one person; I can’t make a difference,” you need to meet Star Chavez, a student at MESS (Mammoth Elementary Stem School). When challenged to think of a community service project, Star thought about the Family First Pregnancy Care Center in Oracle where her aunt, Catherine Starks volunteers.

Knowing that mothers enroll in the Earn While You Learn Program provides valuable lessons in parenting, life skills, Toddler Program, Practical Fatherhood and child development with the incentive to earn material assistance like diapers. Star decided to try to help bring in diapers for the families. She began talking to people at the school, her classmates, friends, and family members telling them about the need.

During the following two weeks to her amazement she received dozens of diapers of all sizes. She and her aunt loaded all the packages into the car and brought them to Family First at 1575 W. American Ave. in Oracle.

Star, a fourth grader, on her own collected over 1400 diapers and wipes and donated them to the center. She made a difference in the lives of many families. We invite mothers, fathers and grandparents to participate in the programs. The Ten for Teens program is a great way to volunteer for a community service project for National Honor Society or add to your resume for high school and college applications. Come find out what it’s all about by calling 520-896-9545 or stopping by the office any Monday, Wednesday or Friday. All the classes are free, practical and informative.
