Skyline’s SHOCK Club acts as difference maker

Following the spirit of giving back this holiday season, SHOCK Club at Skyline High School continues to engage in service for its community.
Started in April by co-presidents Jon Yee and Prabha Dublish, SHOCK stands for Skyline High Outreach Community of Kids. The club’s mission is simply to make the world a better place.
During its weekly meetings, the club organizes drives and other functions that raise money for other youths in the community on a local as well as international level. So far, the club ran a successful change drive for Echo Glen Children’s Center that raised more than $300.
The club is currently planning a supply drive for March that will contribute to the organization GenJoy, which aids children in South Africa. SHOCK is also planning another change drive in May.
“Helping children in a place far from where we live is really cool, because although you cannot actually see the impact of your work, you are still impacting someone else’s life,” Dublish said.
