New Mexico 14-year-old girl receives award for being top youth volunteer

The Prudential Spirit of Community Awards program is the United State’s largest youth recognition program based exclusively on volunteer community service.

Sheree Anderson, 14, of Rainsville, New Mexico is one of the top youth volunteers in the Prudential Spirit of Community Awards. Anderson created a business card to raise awareness of and prevent animal testing that highlights shampoo and conditioner products that are not tested on animals.
