(WYTV) – Our Hometown Heroes this week are a group of kids who are making a difference in our community, one mission at a time.
The Boo Squad has been around for five years. Their founder puts compassion and understanding above all else, teaching the kids this message each time they volunteer.
“I’m so surprised, I’m going to cry. This year has been hard on everyone,” said Boo Squad founder Heather Hrina-Medvec.
COVID-19 has changed a lot and also put some things into perspective. More people than ever before are in need of help.
Among the many volunteer groups in the Valley doing their part is the Boo Squad.
“It makes you feel so good in a time when you feel so helpless,” Hrina-Medvec said.
This group has been completing missions, as they call them, for the last five years. The kids are mostly ages 7 to 13.
