2015 Miss Iowa Princess, Lilly Glandon, visited the Wesley Center and handed out the rest of the school supplies and books donated at the pageant. She also helped serve lunch and clean tables. The Wesley Center is located in Iowa City, Iowa and is a place for the less fortunate of all ages to come and get a healthy meal. The kids were so excited about the books and the parent's really appreciated the school supplies.

In August, 2015 Miss Arizona Princess, Zoephia Decker-Knealing, and 2014-15 National American Miss Teen, Danielle Fisher, volunteered at the Phoenix Children’s Hospital’s (PCH) Teddy Bear Fair. This is an annual event for PCH kids, families and others to come learn more about being healthy. Zoephia’s job was to socialize, make sure kids were having fun, and to help her mom man the basketball game. Below are a couple videos of Zoephia & Danielle teaching & getting kids to dance.

The first week after getting crowned is always super busy, and that held true for 2015 Miss Arizona Teen, Alondra Mitchell. She started off attending the 3rd Annual Tools 4 School event with Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton and other local dignitaries. Tools 4 School provides school supplies to those families that cannot afford them. Alondra was captured by the beautiful smiles of so many who wanted to know how they could become National American Miss Queens and it was a joy for them to hear her share her journey.

Check out a great an opportunity for NAM girls to help in the community! Make sure you contact Veronica Beauchamp by December 9th. See below for more details.
"Project 150" is a nonprofit group striving to help out Homeless Teens and Youth in Nevada. Veronica has been helping them with clothing drives and other events in the past. Each month, they open up "Betty's Boutique" (a storage warehouse at Project 150, located at 3600 N. Rancho Drive, Las Vegas, NV 89130) and allow homeless teens and youth that can show a school ID card to receive several "NEW" outfits to pick out on their own and keep, for FREE. (They must show school ID to prove they are continuing education, and taking advantage of help Project 150 and their partnering organizations are providing to help these kids become successful and thrive).
This month, Project 150 has donations, but they only have 22 helpers. They NEED 63 MORE HELPERS in order to help service the 800 homeless teens and youth that will be there on Saturday, December 12th. So, the Director of Project 150 reached out to Veronica Beauchamp, NAM 2015-2016 Junior Teen National Cover Miss, for help!
Volunteers need to wear CLOSED toed shoes, jeans and a NAM t-shirt. Volunteers need to arrive by 9AM for instruction and station assignment (restocking shelves with items, helping to find sizes, watching the dressing room areas, calculating items to make sure the teens each get listed number of shirts, jeans, etc.....basically, WE are going to run the store!). All volunteers will receive a FREE catered lunch provided by a local casino. Volunteers should be completely finished by 1 PM.
Homeless Teens/Youth will start arriving by 10 AM, until Noon. Afterwards, volunteers will help tidy up and restock shelves.
We could also use a few parents to direct parking, if anyone wants to volunteer. They have safety vests provided.
Anyone who wants to volunteer and CAN show up for sure, should contact Veronica Beauchamp, NAM 2015-2016 Junior Teen National Cover Miss by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by texting her at (702)-279-8345, or you can leave a message on our home phone at (702)-568-3489. We need to provide a list of volunteers to the Director by December 10th.
