HARFORD COUNTY, md. — Harford County teenagers are rising above the pandemic to help other kids.

Volun-Teen is a club formed by teens for teens and their efforts are impressive.

Their latest project is tackling the demand for school desks. The teens joined forces to build more than 100 desks for underprivileged children. It was a rewarding experience for all involved.

"It was challenging it was one of the harder projects but with the help of everyone else we were able to get it done," Ava DeSantis said.

"I created the organization. We do events that help people that have less. We feed the homeless. We do a lot of things for the community," Drew Evans, Founder of Volun-Teen said.

Volun-Teen delivered their desks to kids at Halls Cross Roads Elementary, Magnolia Elementary, and The Boys and Girls Club of Edgewood. They also teamed up with local businesses to fill and donate bags of school supplies with each desk.

Excellent job to all the Volun-Teens! Keep up the great work!
