Richard Zhu, Student Corps Los Angeles President, a North Hollywood High School Junior, is passionate about promoting cancer screening. “There is up to 90% decline in cancer screening-related procedures during the pandemic. Now cancer is being diagnosed at later stages. We want to help promote cancer screening through health education and support,” Richard stated.
Many students who belong to the organization instill the community values of civic responsibility, altruism, and collaboration. Sebastian Wolfenson, a Senior High School student is very proud of being part of this organization, which is dedicated to helping others. ”The value of our volunteering services for our community is two-fold. We enjoy contributing to our community directly with our services and indirectly with our donations,” Wolfenson said.
Ms. Ling Wu from the American Cancer Society received the donation in a small ceremony attended by members of the Student Corp.
