YouthSERVE hosts appreciation event for youth volunteers

Published Saturday July 23

WATSONVILLE >> Watsonville got help from its youth for the past 6 weeks, with 34 volunteers fanning out to nonprofits across the city. As their tenure came to a close, the group was recognized on Sat for their efforts.

“We want to show them that their time and talents are appreciated by all of us in the community,” remarked Desiree Farnal, a coordinator at YouthSERVE, an offshoot program of the Santa Cruz County Volunteer Center focused on connecting children with projects. “This is just a way for us to celebrate them. We appreciate what they’ve done.”

More than helping her community, Upson remarked she is gaining skills that could help her land a higher paying first-job.
