Outreach

The Outreach Committee at JES works to provide goods collections and hands-on projects that will demonstrate to students the value of giving back to their community. Through Outreach, students can experience the excitement of learning they can make a difference in their world. We will be organizing various drives and “Kids Clubs” to benefit local organizations. Through your generous donations of time and goods, we are able to improve the lives of those in need. We will be supporting several local groups including: Beans & Bread, Defenders of Animal Rights, Hawthorne Elementary School, other local elementary schools, and Hereford Food Bank.

This year we will offer several “Kids Clubs”: packing Thanksgiving food bags, creating bookmarks, and painting mugs. These projects allow students to personally give back to the community. NEW THIS YEAR: “Spotlight on Kindness” will take place through out the year placing an emphasis on being Kind every day. Please remember whether you participate in one of our activities or all, you are making a difference in someone’s life! Our Committee is always searching for projects that will allow to students to be involved in giving back to their community and welcomes all suggestions for potential service projects.

“No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.” ~Aesop
