Alternative Winter Break 2016 Post Meaningful Conversations – Jacklyn Kleiman

Jacklyn checks her work at Greenlight

Today I had a lot of fun. We got to volunteer for the green light project. We went and drove around delivering buckets of dirt to the different groups who were building mini gardens for homes. We got to help homes save energy for no cost. We installed energy efficient light bulbs in their houses. Volunteering and getting to interact with the people and being able to talk to them personally was meaningful. Being able to help the environment and learning how being more energy efficient to stop global warming was interesting.

Jacklyn is a 9th grader from Houston, Texas.
