Lower School Students 'Do for Others' in the Community

“Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, ‘What are you doing for others?’” asked Martin Luther King Jr.  
 
SCH’s Lower School faculty members continue to help students answer that urgent question posed by Dr. King. Both Lower School divisions have had decades-long partnerships with two local agencies, St. Vincent de Paul (Lower School for Girls) and Germantown Avenue Crisis Ministry (GACM) (Lower School for Boys). Throughout the year, students help raise awareness for their missions and collect and deliver donations.
 
This year, students achieved 100 percent participation and, together with their families, they collected more than 2,000 food items,125 turkeys during Thanksgiving, more than 40 clothing bags for winter, and raised more than $16,000 during the 5K Race Against Hunger to “end hunger in the Greater Philadelphia area, one step at a time.” Funds from the race went to both St. Vincent’s and GACM.
