On Friday, March 29, Corona del Mar High School hosted its second annual CDM Community Service Fair during lunch in the high school quad. During this event, different clubs and organizations that offer community service opportunities can choose to set up a booth to promote their initiative. Students who came had the chance to participate in a variety of games and learn about local volunteering opportunities. Each booth also offered tickets that they would give out in their creative ways. For instance, the PAL table had a trivia game, and if you got a question correct, you got a ticket. If a student got ten tickets, they could get free frozen yogurt, which enticed many students to come to check out the community service fair. Junior Kaitlin Prendergast, an attendee at this year’s fair, said “it was fun looking at all the booths and getting frozen yogurt at the end!” The CDM Thrift Store was also there as a way to attract students.

A total of seventeen clubs and organizations set up booths for this fair: CDM ASB, CDMMS ASB, Blaze It Forward, Healing Autism through Learning and Opportunities (HALO Dance for Autism), Students Rising, ONE, Jessie Ree’s Foundation, Newport Beach Public Library, Big Brothers Big Sisters (BBBS), Environmental Nature Center, The Persian Club, American Cancer Society, National Honor Society (NHS), Peer Assistance Leadership (PAL), Newport Beach Police Department (NBPD), Down For Dance, and Food, Fun, Film Club.

From helping teach kids in the Big Brothers Big Sisters program to helping serve our community with the Newport Beach Police Department, there was something for everyone at the CDM Community Service Fair this year. Junior Gabby Sosa, who worked at the PAL booth alongside Juniors Emily Hands and Maria Dahl, claimed that this year’s fair “was a big success. We got the chance to talk to a lot of students about potential volunteer opportunities”, spreading awareness of many options to better the community.

The second annual CDM Community Service Fair allowed many organizations and clubs to reach more people, and potentially gain more volunteers to participate in the community. Students also had the chance to learn about local opportunities; if they chose to join one of the organizations that were present, it could help them find what they are passionate about, or gain experience in a field that interests them.
