ACS students raise over $15,000 for charities!

One of our aspirations at ACS is that every student develops a servant’s heart and finds joy in serving others. Our students learn from an early age that they can help make a difference in the world. We have community service projects for all grades, and a buddy program to help reinforce the value and importance of giving of one’s time, talents and gifts. In addition to classroom service projects, all students participate in various charitable events throughout the year.

One of our most successful and long-standing service projects is our monthly Jeans for Green fundraiser. Held on the last Friday of the month, students may wear blue jean shorts, pants, skirts, or skorts for a $1 donation to charity. Each month a different class receives this money for their charity group. Charities are subject to change based on needs in our community, society, etc. The following charities were supported through Jeans for Green: 
MS Blood Services, Operation Christmas Child, MS College Dyslexia Research, St. Vincent de Paul Society, The Golden Triangle Regional Homeless Coalition, St. Jude's Children's Hospital, St. Joseph's Food Pantry, Catholic Relief Services. 

Other service projects held throughout the school year include Beta Club fundraisers supporting The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, St. Vincent de Paul (Just Walk), and in-kind donations to Global Connections. School-wide service projects were also held for in-kind donations throughout this year benefitting The Columbus Lowndes Humane Society, Helping Hands (290 boxes of cereal!), and St. Joseph's Catholic Church food pantry. 

This year, through various service projects, ACS students have raised over $15,000 for charities!
