Sophomore Sophia Mason decided to dedicate her Sunday morning on Oct. 10 to be a personal shopper for Operation School Bell (OSB). She spent the four hours keeping track of families’ balances and helping them find affordable clothing for their children. “I decided to get involved with OSB because I needed community service hours and my grandma has been a part of the organization for years and has always told me I should get involved with it,” Mason said. “I will continue volunteering because it is a good cause and I enjoyed being a shopping assistant because I enjoy helping people.”
