Five FIngers of Bully Prevention empowers youth with the skills necessary to be more aware and make conscious decisions. We give youth a mental point of awareness for fast and easy recall so if they are ever in a dangerous situation they will be able to respond from a place of knowledge instead of reacting out of fear.

The mission of this program is to make sure the men and women living on the streets know they are not forgotten and they are loved. Michaela West, founder of the program, recalls that as early as age 3, she can remember driving in the car seeing people asking for money or food. She felt pangs in her stomach and felt an ache in her heart for these people. When her 5th birthday rolled around, she decided to start collecting for the street homeless who live in the parks, in tents, boxes and under bridges. After collecting items for her first delivery, friends and family helped bundle everything together. She noticed then that not all the bundles had the exact same items in them and was worried. Her mother said, “It doesn’t matter if all the items in the bundles are the same, it’s the love that you are giving them with that does.” That’s when she decided to call them Bundles of Love! She wanted to share the special feeling from delivering the bundles so she started a chapter at St.Joseph’s Regional Catholic School. Club members collect donated items such as gently used blankets, coats, clothing, toiletries and non-perishable foods and meet to compile the bundles. Club members then hit the streets with their families and hand out the bundles to those in need.
