One proven way to increase our overall well being, decrease stress, and combat symptoms of depression and anxiety is to spend time serving and helping others. We're encouraged by these Augusta High School students for giving back to their community. Thanks for setting a great example!

Throughout this school year the Augusta High School juniors and seniors in the National Honor Society have been coming down to help at the Caring Center. These volunteers mean a great deal to us and we are very glad to see them. Brandon Denoncourt and Morgan Kirk were two who spent a few days with us. Recently Riley Zerr came down to help (photo of Riley included with permission of her parents). These students all maintain a 3.5 cumulative GPA and have learned the value of service to others. Congratulations to all of them and thanks again for all your help.
