Steven Costa


Steven Costa, Thunder Ridge Middle School, Aurora, started a clothing and toy drive for the Aurora Interchurch Task Force, an organization that provides emergency assistance. He recruited more than 40 people from his community to help with the project, which took over 350 hours to complete. After five weeks, the drive had amassed over 3,600 pounds of clothing and toys, which were delivered to those in need.

"Volunteering not only gives you a sense of pride, but also gives you the opportunity to meet and interact with others."
