CCHS iCARE Volunteers at Homeless and Travelers Aid Society

Several iCARE students participated in one of 19 trips this school year to the Homeless and Travelers Aid Society’s warehouse off Everett Road.

The experience was both educational and productive as 13 members received a Powerpoint presentation on the origins, evolution and current service purposes of HATAS. Students then were able to receive instructions and pack boxes meant to service some 200-plus weekend backpack recipients in Albany City Schools.

The HATAS operational orientation and explanation of purpose further highlighted the dire needs that Colonie and the Capital Region require for those who are struggling and continue to struggle financially. iCARE will continue to volunteer every other Wednesday at the HATAS warehouse location with 12-15 students throughout the year.

All interested students in participating with these volunteer opportunities should either attend regular iCARE meetings on Wednesdays at 2:15 p.m. in Room 115 or go to Mr. Kachadurian’s office to sign up. All volunteers must complete a school permission slip and a HATAS participation waiver, both of which are found in Mr. Kachadurian’s office.

ith just the cooperative volunteerism of 12 students over the course of one hour, iCARE students have improved the lives of over 200 individuals who are in need. We encourage all student to be that element of support and change.
