Mona Shores HS Interact Club promotes community service



NORTON SHORES, Mich. (WOOD) – A quick glance left or right reveals who’s in pain, but some desperate people don’t always get the services they desperately need.

That’s why some students at Mona Shores High School decided to lend a hand. Senior Ana Ivanov said she fueled her passion for giving by joining Interact Club.

“I am passionate about service,” said Ivanov. “I grew up in a church, so this is something that is very ingrained in my life.

Interact Club is an extension of the Rotary Club, a service organization whose members fight hunger, improve health, and provide education, among other resources.

The club even partnered with Goodwill last year to donate children’s books to Muskegon Area Intermediate School District’s Read early. Read often. initiative. He seeks to improve the literacy rates of children in western Michigan.

“We did a big project last year, Hometown Heroes,” Ivanov said. “We have decorated bags for people who are essential workers, nurses and healthcare workers.”

The club is also working on beach cleaning, an exciting project for junior Kyan Bohn.

“I’d rather do service projects and then struggle with my homework than have an easy school life,” Bohn said.

Both students are proud of the Interact Club because it gives them something to believe in, something that benefits their community.

“(It gives me) this feeling of knowing that I’ve done something and there are people who are going to be proud of it,” Bohn said.

For Ivanov, it’s personal, which is why she calls on other classmates to be a part of something bigger than themselves.

“If you feel like you want to make an impact on the world, this is definitely the club to join,” Ivanov said.
