Young Heroes Profiles in Service
Addison is a Girl Scout who does lots of volunteering and keeps busy with community service projects. Four year ago, as a Girl Scout, she rallied her troop to participate in a "One Warm Coat" coat drive - which she saw listed in a Girl Scout guide, of suggested community service projects. Early on it was clear that she would be a leader on this project, as she was excited to learn she could directly help the needy by connecting them with a warm coat - even one from her own closet. She is currently in her 4th consecutive year of doing coat drives and over the years, her efforts have helped connect hundreds of people with a warm winter coat that fits well and keeps them warm. This year, she collected approximately 200 coats/jackets and approximately 50 cold weather accessories. The items are distributed through a local homeless shelter for families, a facility for teen girls, local individuals and families, and other groups.

In addition to her work through her Girl Scout troop, Addison she stays involved with environmental projects. An avid turtle lover, she took notice several years ago to the danger turtles were facing, as they tried to navigate their way over a local roadway that travels through a wetlands area. She collected some information and submitted an application for an environmental grant to the local historical society. She was awarded the grant and those funds were used to purchase turtle crossing" signs for the town, to post on the roadway and warn motorists to watch for turtles. She continues to want to help protect the local turtle population - as she's currently trying to bring attention to local turtle species that are identified/classified as endangered on the state/federal level. Currently, she is actively working to have legislation passed to protect a local species which is listed as endangered on the state/federal level, and having it named as the Massachusetts State Turtle.

Through her commitment to service, she continues to help her neighbors in need and advocates for the protection of local ecosystems and animal species. For her efforts, we honor her as one of our Everyday Young Heroes.

Amber Aduja 09-10 National American Miss Jr Preteen spreads cheer to Military Families !

M E D I A R E L E A S E

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
AMBER ADUJA SPREADS GOODWILL AND ALOHA TO TRIPLER ARMY MEDICAL CENTER PEDIATRIC WARD IN FURTHERANCE OF CATHOLIC SCHOOLS WEEK

On February 5, 2010, St. Ann’s Model Schools 5th grader Amber Aduja, National American Miss (“NAM”) Jr. Preteen Queen 2010, of Kaneohe visited the Tripler Army Medical Center (“TAMC”) Department of Pediatrics, in furtherance of her final day of the “Dividends for Life” themed Catholic Schools Week (February 1 – 5, 2010). The purpose of St. Ann’s Model School’s participation in the annual national Catholic Schools Week is to instill in their students a lifelong commitment to serving others. Through Amber’s continuous work with the Lokahi Giving Project, a Hawaii non-profit organization whose mission is to assist in-need families, and at-risk children and teens, she obtained University of Hawaii (“UH”) baseball caps to give to TAMC pediatric patients suffering from broken bones, cancer, leukemia or other illness or injury. At TAMC, Amber greeted its young patients and passed out UH baseball caps to in-patient children of the Pediatric Ward, their parents and siblings, and TAMC nurses and staff.

“It was a very rewarding experience to introduce myself to the children, their parents, and nurses; recite my NAM personal introduction to them and share my experiences as a national titleholder. It felt great to give then all UH baseball caps,” exclaimed Amber Aduja. “I hope I’ve spread the aloha spirit to our military families, especially for all their hard world peace and homeland security efforts and all the relief and development work that they are doing in Haiti,” Amber explains. “Their children can always use a cheerful visit and a gift every once in awhile to show our deep appreciation for all that their families do. All our prayers are with the military children as they recover. We wish them health and wellness,” Amber said.

“This was a very touching experience and I hope that my experience can serve as a role model for all students to make a lifelong commitment to serve others in our community,” Amber said.
