2016 may almost be over, but students from the Tri-State area are still making a positive impact in their communities! Last week we talked about how Turpin High School wrapped up November with their project to hold a basketball game to donate proceeds to LifeCenter, and now that it’s December, this month is loaded with projects from several different schools.
From the beginning of the month, the students at Clinton Massie have been sorting clothing they collected that will be donated to victims of Hurricane Matthew.
Seton High School partook in a full day of service events which included hearing from keynote speaker Clare Blankenmeyer, the Program Director of the Mayerson Foundation High School Service Learning Program, and visiting various service locations in the Seton community to visit and participate in activities such as making cookie jars for the Down Syndrome Association, making blankets for the homeless, sending care packages and Christmas cards to troops, reading to and tutoring students, and many other activities. Be on the lookout for more details on how the day went and the acts of service the students partook in.
Within the same week, Edgewood High School will be throwing a Christmas party for students with mental disabilities in their district. The party will include the showing of the movie “Polar Express”, activities such as a visit from Santa, arts and craft stations, a performance by the Edgewood Choraliers, a photo booth station, and receiving presents.
Milford High School has been collecting presents to donate to the Wrapping Clermont Together organization and on the 15th, will be holding a breakfast and presenting the gifts to the organization.
Following their project from last month where students at Goshen High School had organized food to donate to a local food pantry in their district, this month, they will be volunteering at a soup kitchen on Christmas Eve. They will be completing a final Service Project on March 24th by organizing and holding a rally against heroin usage.
We will be visiting some of these Service Challenge Projects, so be sure to follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram as we talk about the day of the event as well as upcoming projects spanning from now until this upcoming April! #AMFChallenge
