Carver Volunteer Grant Cellar to be honored by The Community Fund of Darien

Grant Cellar, a Darien student, will be honored during The Community Fund of Darien's thirty-eighth annual Volunteer Recognition Day for your outstanding contributions to the Carver Foundation of Norwalk. 

The Community Fund of Darien celebrates Darien's community spirit of volunteerism for individuals and projects that have made a significant difference in the area over the past year.  Nonprofit agencies and organizations involved in the Darien community were invited to select a volunteer or project to honor at their luncheon and Carver chose Grant.  We are pleased that Grant will be honored during this special day.

The event will be held on Tuesday, May 23rd at the Darien Community Association. They will honor the volunteers and then have a special presentation by their guest speaker, author and entrepreneur, Jonathan Fanning. Fanning has spoken in over 45 states and on 3 continents. His recent TED Talk won best speaker at the conference. He will also be signing copies of his book Who Are You Becoming? A light luncheon will be served. 

I am an 8th grader at Middlesex Middle School in Darien CT. My favorite subjects are math and science. The sports I play are lacrosse, basketball, and football. My favorite basketball team is the OKC Thunder and my favorite football team is the NY Giants. One of my passions is giving back to the community. In addition to working with the kids at Carver, I have volunteered with The American Red Cross and The Bridgeport Rescue Mission. My favorite organization to volunteer at is the Carver Center. It is my favorite because I love the kids that I help, they are very kind and always let me help them. At their young age, they need role models to look up to and I try my best to be one of them.
