EHS Sisterhood helps Habitat for Humanity
The first day of vacation is typically celebrated by sleeping in late. That was not the way members of the Sisterhood from Eaglecrest High School spent their first day of winter break.

Instead, they rose bright and early for a group breakfast before heading over to a Habitat for Humanity site in Montbello. They spent the first day of their break helping with various tasks at the site of a multi-family complex that is expected to take a couple of years to complete. The service provided by the Sisterhood was needed and appreciated.

Despite working an eight hour shift in freezing cold weather, the girls said they felt good about spending their day helping others. In fact, many girls expressed that the experience was so rewarding, they would love to spend more time working with Habitat for Humanity in the future.

The EHS Sisterhood is a group of young women who have a racial affinity of identifying as African American and form a community, or Sisterhood, of support for one another. This group is not about excluding others; rather, it is about members empowering one another because of their unique experiences. The Sisterhood sponsors are Della Bundle, Danielle Daugherty, Barbara Edwards, Stacey Brandon and Valerie James.

Way to be great community members, Sisterhood. You did yourselves and Eaglecrest proud!
