For over ten years, Glenholme students and staff amplify their philanthropic efforts with the Adopt-a-Family program. Aiming to jump-start the holiday giving, the Student Council members assisted with the annual schoolhouse faculty-sponsored raffle by preparing gift baskets and arranging some donated items for the big holiday giving event.
Every year, the teacher-sponsored effort operates in concert with another campus-wide effort, in which staff directly donate items from a local family’s wish list.
Giving to others, helps to bring out the best qualities in ourselves. Coupled with the Student Council’s enthusiasm, students gain a greater sense of ownership and investment in the world around them.
