Chabad Partners with SpongeBob SquarePants to honor Students for Community Service

 

The Good Deed Awards are an annual recognition of the charitable acts of high school students from throughout Long Island. 

Created by Rabbi Anchelle Perl, Director of Chabad in Mineola, this year’s honorees are once again a reminder of the selfless nature of the majority of youth and the endless value of this ongoing program—socially, educationally, culturally.

Hailing from more than 17 schools, are teenagers who visited nursing homes, devoted their time to ill children, worked with special needs students, volunteered at animal shelters, or even worked on projects to benefit the environment—all on their own time and of their own volition.

Among this year’s honorees, is Miriam Starobin, a 12-year-old Long Island girl crediting "SpongeBob SquarePants" for teaching her how to help her choking friend.

Miriam and her best friend, Allyson Golden, were in music class at the Long Beach Middle School, when Allyson began choking on her gum. Allyson turned red and started kicking her legs.

Miriam -- with thoughts of SpongeBob and the gang -- flew into action and performed the Heimlich maneuver, and the gum popped out.

The Awards Ceremony takes place this Tuesday evening May 4th 2010, at 5pm in the Supreme Court in Nassau County, this year’s winners will be lauded by government and community leaders.

As a side note, very often it takes these “good news”stories about a few teens to balance the “bad news” –about today’s kids and there sure is plenty of that negative stuff on TV or in print.   The program is open to the entire community.
