Special Friends - Katie Auger
My service project was to go to the Special Friends program at the St. Cloud Children’s Home. It is a program where kids from Cathedral go to the home and talk with the kids there. We go there to talk to the underprivileged kids to help them get away from their normal lives for an hour a week. A group of about 30 kids go to the Children’s Home once a week on Wednesday for an hour. We do many different activities every week. Those include going to the gym, art activities, and doing board games.
I liked it because the kids there have such good personalities and they make me laugh and have a good time. I also liked going to Special Friends because it opened my eyes and showed me that even though those kids don’t have the greatest lives, they are still really good kids and they have so much potential to have good lives.
