The Patriotic Student Alliance loves helping people especially if those people are our beloved veterans.
Last Thursday the Patriotic Student Alliance club had its annual soup kitchen for the homeless veterans in Blair County for Thanksgiving. The students feel an obligation to help the veterans.
“It’s important to give back to those who put everything on the line for us,” junior Owen Kravetz said. The students understand the sacrifice that our veterans faced
The students feel that the soup kitchen is a way to say thanks to the veterans.
“I just want to be with the veterans and get to know them and help them out— it is the right thing to do,” sophomore Jonah Zolnak said.
The event took place at the Hollidaysburg veterans home. They feel as though they learned so much about themselves in partaking in the activity.
“It makes you feel good about yourself, helping in the community and knowing that you’re making a difference in your community and in other people’s lives,” junior Ali Berger said. “I have learned that people’s lives are different and helping other people is important, and it is important to give back in your community to make your town a better place.”
The Patriotic Student Alliance will be participating in a somewhat similar event for Christmas.
“We just have to take notice of the veterans because without them there would be no America. It’s important that we recognize all that they have done for us,” Kravetz said.
