Altoona students plan to help shovel neighboring sidewalks

Altoona (WQOW)- There may have only been flurries Tuesday, but students at Altoona Middle School are preparing to help others once we do get a lot of snow.

School counselor Brooke Kaldor said they’ve picked out 15 6th graders to be ‘Snow Angels’ and help shovel the sidewalks and driveways of homes near the school.

Kaldor said students will also brush snow off their teachers cars on snowy days.

She said they picked their most helpful kids to participate in this community service.

“I’m glad that I’m a part of this community, and it’s a good way to just help everyone. It doesn’t matter what you are, you can just help other people,” said 6th grader Aubrie Krause.

“I think for students there’s just so much that goes into making a good citizen, whether it’s just having good academics, but also just being a good community member,” Kaldor said. “We always say it takes a village to raise a child and I think these kids have a lot to give back to their village.”

Kaldor said they were able to fundraise $245 for nine shovels and six snow scrapers in one day.
