Students Volunteer at Pottersville Fire House Pancake Breakfast
Posted 02/04/2013 03:00PM

Five Purnell students volunteered their time serving at the Pottersville Volunteer Fire Company's Superbowl Sunday Pancake Breakfast this past weekend. This collaboration with the Fire Company and Purnell has been a long lasting tradition and students are happy to receive community service hours while also being ambassadors for Purnell. It was sophomore and Chinese International student Huan Li's first time volunteering for the Pancake Breakfast, and she expressed having a great time even though the students were on their feet for almost five hours.

"I really enjoyed this volunteer opportunity, because I always used to help my family like that, when my mom's tea house was still open," said Li.

Two-time volunteer and senior, Chengnan Wu said, "Although it's not easy work, I still enjoyed it and felt proud of myself when I saw people's happy faces. That's also why I chose to volunteer again this year. It's so nice when I got to hear "thank you" from all the people I served."

Purnell strives to create a school and working environment that is affirming and inclusive. Purnell respects and values its diversity and does not discriminate on the basis of differences in age, ethnicity, family structure, national origin, physical attributes, race, religion, sexual orientation or socioeconomic background.
