Two Law & Public Service Seniors Create “Tokens of Community Kindness” to Help Those in Need

Gianna Smurro and Shannon Kelly, both seniors in the Law & Public Service Magnet Program at Colts Neck High School, wanted to spread holiday cheer for their Senior Seminar service-learning project.

The duo created Tokens of Community Kindness (TOCK) to assist those in need in the local community. They organized an online fundraiser where they were able to raise $730. The funds were used to “adopt” two local families and provide them with Shop Rite gift cards, clothing, and toys this holiday season.

Law & Public Service’s Senior Seminar class explores the values of citizenship, justice, and service. Students plan and execute service-learning projects that address real needs in the community.
