Lower School Girls Continue Decades-Long Tradition of MLK Day Service

Due to COVID-19 and our safety restrictions, the Lower School Girls' Day of Service (annual event on the Friday before MLK Day) looked a little different this year, but the energy and enthusiasm was the same! Grades 1-4 filled 65 grocery bags containing hundreds of boxed and canned food items. Two car trunks were filled to capacity as they delivered these donations to Caring for Friends on Friday.

The 4th grade girls sorted the many and assorted donations of winter outerwear amounting to 18 large bags which will be distributed to the clients of DeSales Works in Camden, NJ. Meanwhile, our Pre-K and Kindergarten students assembled 205 breakfast bags for Meals On Wheels—a service that stretches back 20 years! These breakfast bags were filled with oatmeal, applesauce, granola bar, hot chocolate, a tea bag, napkin, and a special note on a heart. 

This year is different in so many ways, but the same desire to offer service to remember the life of Martin Luther King, Jr. remains the same. Thank you, SCH Community, for your ongoing support and generosity!
