Students at Summit School of Ahwatukee Give Back Through Service Projects
For 83 students at the Summit School of Ahwatukee, community service projects are becoming a way of life.
According to the Ahwatukee Foothills News, this school year the students, led by teacher and student council advisor Melissa France, have participated in giving campaigns to help children in the Philippines, in hurricane-ravaged Houston, and right here in Arizona.
So far this year, the students packed meals for children in the Philippines with Feed My Starving Children. Then the students “adopted” the student body at Alvin Junior High in Houston, offering goodie bags for kids and created an Amazon wish list for the school and its students, raising $700 in gift cards and a slew of supplies for the school and its kids, the article said.
Now, this holiday season, instead of having a winter party, students have reportedly been making no-sew blankets for infants born in the Crisis Nursery.
