Balance Boxes Made By High Schoolers for Kids in Need
Meet Austin, a high school student from N.J., who is part of a non-profit helping kids in need.
Austin Yang (in his Junior year) is part of a team of high school students who are working with a national non-profit organization to provide children in need with boxes full of supplies they can use...sometimes even including a coupon for free tutoring!
Austen, the chapter founder for Balance Boxes, and his NJ team have been collecting items, filling Balance Boxes, and then delivering them to kids in need.
Not only is this an amazing organization that has gotten very little publicity, but many of the chapters are run by student groups who are learning to do good in this world and to give back.
Students in Monmouth and Ocean County area are welcome to become involved and join the NJ chapter. Or maybe you know of a local organization that is trying to help children in need that may benefit from receiving balance boxes for children in need in our area.
So what exactly are Balance Boxes?
"Since the founding of our chapter, we have raised over $20,000 in in-kind donations, and have donated more than 135 boxes to children’s centers and churches!"
