St. Luke’s Students Receive Hershey Heartwarming Young Heroes Global Youth Service Day Grant

Congratulations to Laurel Aronian ’25 and Tylie Kubick ’26 for being selected as two of the 134 youth changemakers receiving a Hershey Heartwarming Young Heroes Global Youth Service Day grant. During Youth Service Month (April 12-May 12), grantees will organize, lead, and engage their peers in awareness, direct service, advocacy, and philanthropic projects! 

Tylie chose to work with the Center for Empowerment and supported their Kind Hearts Initiative: Kids Helping Kids Against Violence program by hosting a necessities drive. Throughout April, she collected non-perishable food and personal hygiene products — such as shampoo and conditioner, soap, toothbrushes and toothpaste, deodorant, and baby diapers — to help stock the center's shelves.

Laurel used her grant to host a “Let’s Play Chess Party.” This event, run by Chessin1day, an organization Laurel founded with her brother Jack ’28, brought together underserved kids from Fairfield County community-based organizations to teach them how to play chess. The party, held at the New Canaan Library on April 20, included Hershey, US Chess, and chess.com giveaways, a chess cake, and a visit from First Selectman of New Canaan Dionna Carlson — who even made the first move on the board.
