Ephesians 6:7 “….with good will doing service, as to the Lord and not to men.”
The Legacy Kids Servathon is the October school-wide fundraiser. In the event every student in the school is assigned a service project. The younger students design placemats for The Better Way, an organization serving the homeless in the Columbus Short North. The Elementary students visit local nursing homes. The Secondary students serve in the community by scrubbing walls, painting, collecting trash, sorting clothes and shelving food at local food banks.
In the past years the campaign has raised over $900,000.00 with this past year bringing in $54,133.00. Many valuable additions have been made to the school such as a geo-thermal heating and cooling system, a digital sign, an enclosed walkway between buildings, a door security system, student desks, chairs, lockers, air-conditioners, gymnasium lights and much more. Each year a portion of the monies go toward student funds to aid in mission projects and class trips.
The 2015 Legacy Kids Servathon will be held on Thursday, October 15.
If you would like to volunteer to help with the projects or donate to the students who serve, please contact Jane Miner at firstname.lastname@example.org or call the school at 740-363-8425.
