Mission Possible, a club in its second year at AHS has consistently focused on giving back to the community through various service activities. This includes having different donation drives such as for children’s books or participating in food drives for underprivileged communities.

As the club launched again for the school year, their first project was to make crayons to be donated to patients at INOVA Children’s Hospital.

Approximately 15 Mission Possible club members gathered over the weekend to take part in the process of making the crayons. The process consisted of peeling and breaking the crayons followed by melting them down. Afterwards, club members used silicone molds to create crayons of various shapes, sizes and color combinations.

“My favorite part of the process was breaking the crayons because it was easier then peeling the labels off of them,” senior Ruth Seyoum said.

After four hours of melting and awaiting for the crayon molds to set into their colorful and creative shapes including heart and animal-shaped designs, Mission Possible members organized and prepared the crayons for delivery.

The crayons will be delivered to children at INOVA Children’s Hospital as club members hope to provide patients with more comfort and happiness.

“I am excited to donate the crayons that we made to our local children’s hospital,” Mission Possible President Maisha Maliha said. “I hope it will brighten someone’s day.”
