Featured Falcon: Diamond Clover Heart Pillow Project founder Jayson Lee


SMCS freshman Jayson Lee started the Diamond Clover Heart Pillow Project. Students help to create handmade heart pillows and donates them to children recovering from surgery and children in foster care. 

What motivated you to start this?

I saw my community in need, and I felt compelled to do something about it. 

How does volunteering affect your everyday life?

I generally spend a lot of time volunteering. It has become a big part of my life now, so it doesn’t really affect my everyday life because it is my everyday life. 

How do you make the time to volunteer as well as participate in school and afterschool activities?

I try to limit my recreational time to fit in my volunteering time. 

How do you go about recruiting other volunteers?

I make connections through 4-H and my schoolmates, and these connections allow me to reach out to other volunteers and groups.
