Take A Look At The African American Read-In At Hazelwood West Middle School

Hazelwood Patch participates in "Give 5" by reading to seventh and eighth-grades students as part of Black History Month.

Patch was in full effect at Wednesday as part of the school's celebration. Hazelwood Patch editor and St. Louis regional editor Holly Edgell each took a few hours out of their day to spend some time with our nation's future as part of Patch's Give 5 initiative, a push for all patch employees to volunteer in the communities in which they serve.

Volunteers from throughout the came to the school to read minority fiction and non-works of art to the students who, aside from getting out of school work for a few moments, said they enjoyed the readings and readers.

Where should Patch volunteer next?

I so agree about the pen/pencil sales machines. I needed those in school, and I need them in life! Such a deal, too.
