PCA Seniors spent their final day of SHINE serving at Cass Community Service Center. Putting aside the usual senior pride for a couple days, they humbled themselves to see the world through the eyes of citizens of Detroit by preparing food for the homeless and making products out of recycled materials to raise money.

Senior Allison Kwang describes the humility involved in this year during SHINE: “The last couple days have allowed us to see what other people go through every day and have opened our eyes and given us a perspective to see where our problems actually stand.”

The students spent time working in the kitchen, as well as in the warehouse. In the kitchen, they prepared meals for the numerous homeless people that Cass feeds lunch to every day. The organization provides one million meals to hungry Detroiters each year.
In the warehouse, students wove together doormats out of discarded tires and colorful beads. To date, Cass Community Services has collected over 30,000 tires from blighted buildings and lots in the city.

With the help of volunteers, Cass Services can give hope to the poorest residents of Detroit. Through these experiences, the senior class gained a better perspective on how others live and the measures that others take to provide for those that are less fortunate.
