Novelis, Inc. held a special Thursday Dinner for Pete Nance Boys & Girls Club members recently. Several employees from Novelis team participated in serving the youth during their sponsored dinner night.
PNBGC teen members also assisted with serving younger Club members. They helped organize the event alongside Novelis in ensuring he event ran smoothly and everyone was served on time.
“The younger club members gave the teens a strong clap and a handshake to let them know they appreciated their efforts and emphasis on service,” PNBGC Director, Stacy McClendon, shared.
McClendon shared Thursday dinners allow Club members to learn about healthy eating habits, as well as fellowship with community members.
Teen member, TreVeon Jackson, shared he “loved helping with Spaghetti Dinner.”
“Not only am I helping the staff, but I’m also helping with the Club members and they look up to me as a great role model,” he added.
For Ariana Ross, another Teen member, she loves being able to use her leadership skills.
“I get the chance to use my leadership skills by going and getting members and bringing them over to seat them for their meal,” she shared.
McClendon added that the evening is spent with happy faces and lots of laughter.
“It was a pleasure to work with the teens on service and hospitality,” he shared. “They learned a great deal and performed very well. I was particularly impressed with their enthusiasm to serve and provide excellent service to their fellow members.”
All in all, McClendon added that service events like this done happen without the help of the community.
“Thank you to Jim Borland, Novelis, Inc., and our Teen Center Club members for making this event very memorable,” he said.
