Carly Terensky of Avella High School is an exceptional young lady. Every year at Easter time, she ventures into the Washington County community and asks for people to sponsor her project in providing Easter baskets for children in need. Carly purchases all of the materials and goodies and creates amazing baskets that are truly awe-inspiring!
Carly stated that she is aware of the emotional impact on children in the foster care system and was inspired to create something special for these kids. She chose the Easter holiday to spread a little joy by helping out the Easter bunny!
This year, Carly made 60 Easter baskets and partnered with our JusticeWorks YouthCare staff to distribute the baskets to children in need. It was a successful community effort for all who participated.
Carly is a junior at the Avella High School and has plans to go to college after she graduates.
