WARREN, NJ - Warren student, Isabella Percario started a service group called Acts of Kindness, or A-OK, and collected over 700 books after the call to donate was published in TAPinto Warren in February. The books were distributed to the community of St. Joseph's church in North Plainfield in celebration of International Book Giving day.
Percario says, "A special thank you to Warren Middle School, Warren Public Library, Our Lady of the Mount Church, Mount Saint Mary Academy, and all the friends and family that helped us surpass our goal! Follow us on Instagram @thekindgeneration for upcoming projects and volunteer opportunities."
A-OK is a generationOn service club program. The generationON service club program for youth 11-18 years old was launched in 2012 with the mission of inspiring and equipping older youth to take positive action in their communities. Clubs are youth-led, supported by an adult advisor. There are currently over 200 registered generationOn Service Clubs across the United States and internationally.
GenerationON's vision is a world where all young people have the opportunity to make a positive mark on the world with a mission to provide programs and resources that support the development of caring, compassionate and capable kids and teens through service, empowering them to become changemakers in their communities and the world, according to the website.
