During the 2021 MLK Day of Service, members of the SmileUp! Foundation adopted a service project to help seniors impacted by the pandemic. The young volunteers cleaned and decorated the outdoor windows at Woodstock Nursing & Rehabilitation Center Home with encouraging words and images.
The mission of SmileUp! is to encourage volunteerism among kids, who instinctively focus on the humanity of a person. The nonprofit reinforces this character trait, and teaches empathy, compassion and tolerance for the youth to carry into adulthood. Tonya Riddick is the executive director.
