During this season of giving, Latinitas club members wrote about how they spread the spirit of giving and help their community.
I care about the environment! I help the community by collecting cans. I recycle it and earn lots of money. If I earn just enough money I give it to people in need. At my old school, I entered a program and I would pick up trash and make things out of it. One time, I…Continue
