The Corner Table was pleased to have the help from the ALP students and gave them all credit for the hard work that was done. They said this was one of the best school groups they had ever had volunteer their time at the organization. The staff was also impressed with the students willingness to help. One teacher remarked, “It is a blessing to see the best of the students shine through.” Many times all it takes is for students to be given the chance to help.
