Vail Mountain School students lend a hand
EAGLE COUNTY – On a recent Friday, Vail Mountain School students spent the day volunteering throughout the county.
Students in sixth though eighth grades volunteered with several local organizations including Eco Trails, Summit Recycling, the Eagle River Watershed Council, Vail Resorts, the Humane Society, Avon preschool, the Salvation Army and the Minturn Senior Center. “Community service and volunteering opportunities are an integral part of the Vail Mountain school experience,” said Kate Blakslee, community service director. “It is our goal to provide as many volunteer experiences as possible so that students graduate with the willingness and desire to volunteer throughout life.”
