Brian M. Wong

For the past 4 months, he has been involved in 2 community service projects. The first is entertaining senior residents at a retirement home with his piano music every Sunday. His music sharing is called “If you can hum it, I can play it.” His second community service involves recruiting sponsors for this “Hum-N-Play” project, and all proceeds go to Alameda County Community Food Bank (ACCFB). One sponsor said, “Both of these projects are selfless in nature and deserve our support.” Another said, “ The donors probably feel that if a 14-year-old boy can donate his time to entertain the elderly and then humble himself to collect on behalf of the poor, they too should certainly do their best by making a larger donation than usual.” Although what Brian has raised is not an enormous amount, it is a sizable sum for a 14-year-old boy. Moreover, his innovative efforts in combining a project of serving the elderly with another of raising money for the poor and hungry are indeed noteworthy.
