Daria learns that just because you're old doesn't mean you can't still be shallow!
7 March 2011 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Ms. Li forces the kids to all volunteer to help others. Jane gets a job doing arts & crafts with kids in the hospital. Quinn and the Fashion Club collect clothing for the homeless. And, Brittany, Kevin and Daria read to the old folks in a nursing home.

Quinn and the Club totally screw up and collect almost nothing--mostly because, as usual, they only are thinking about themselves. Jane is thrown out of the hospital because of the goth artwork she has the kids do (such as changing the clowns on a mural to Mongol invaders). And, Daria is loathed by most of the old folks. Part of this is due to Daria's choice of stories and glum mood, but the oldsters also turn out to be as shallow as the students, as they LOVE Brittany and Kevin.

Overall, it's a cute episode and it's well worth seeing-and not just because you see 'the chocolate lady'--my favorite recurring obscure character.
