Kareena Rogers, of Yardley, a junior at Doane Academy, was recently named a Distinguished Finalist in the Prudential Spirit of Community Awards, a nationwide program honoring young people for outstanding acts of volunteerism.

Kareena planted a variety of fruits and vegetables in a community garden last spring and then, over the summer, donated bags filled with the produce she’d grown to a local food pantry every week.

She also donated healthy recipe cards to inspire those who went home with the produce, and provided hands-on volunteer support during the pantry’s distribution day.
