Check the events page for our current campaign...we always have a cause that we are working on!!
In September we organized the first annual school rankin run, which is a run to raise funds for local cancer organizations. We raised over $4500!!
During October, we focused on We Scare Hunger where we collected non-perishable food items in our community for community care.
Our goal during this month is to sell rafiki bracelets to support communities in need around the world.
We are also pleased to announce our 9th annual participation of the `Adopt a Family` program for Gillian’s Place. Link: http://gilliansplace.com/holiday-programs. Donations are being accepted until December 5th to support a family with 7 children! If you would like to help, please ask your child/teacher if their class has sponsored a family or child and find out how you can help! Gift cards and cash donations will be gladly accepted until Tuesday, Dec. 5.
Along with supporting this family, we`ll also be supporting children at Harriet Tubman School with a pyjama and book drive.
