South Pointe choir serenades the homeless

WALNUT, CA—The choir from South Pointe Middle School spent the evening serenading the homeless at the Pomona Cold Winter Shelter on December 12.

Student's and their families weathered the rain to bring food, clothing, and music to the lives of our local homeless.

The evening was filled with the music of the Beatles, traditional choir music, and Christmas carols.

"This was the most meaningful event of my life,” 8th grader Paige Asprec, 8th grader told fellow choir members.

“I was inspired by how grateful they all were to us even though they don't have a place to live,” added seventh grader Ernie Perez.

Community member Rachelle Lynn Pitre and her parents run the shelter.

“They are amazing people!” described choir director Robin Wadsworth.

“Thank you to our South Pointe Choir and Mrs. Wadsworth for remembering the power to ‘Do ONE Thing’ to make the world a better place!” said Principal Susan Arzola.
