At Christ Methodist, our students are made keenly aware of their social responsibility as citizens of God’s world, as well as their community. Service to others is an integral part of the school experience.
Here are some of the ways that Christ Methodist has recently touched others:
Maintenance Appreciation Week – the SCA sponsors this annual event, during which students are encouraged to decorate the school with posters, make and send cards, bring in meals and snacks, and pray for members of the campus maintenance staff.
CMDS collected enough peanut butter, crackers, and powdered milk at our Thanksgiving Chapel to fill twenty-five 30-gallon storage boxes. The food was donated to the United Methodist Neighborhood Center Food Pantry.
The SCA joined Christ Church and other community groups for Christ Feeds to assemble thousands of packages of dried food for the starving people of Africa.
1000 new and gently used books were collected by the SCA and donated to Corner Preparatory School in Binghampton.
At our annual Birthday Party for Jesus, students of all ages brought more than 400 new toys, which our sixth graders packed up and donated to the Binghampton Christmas Store.
The NEHS collected more than 300 canned food items to benefit the Mid-South Food Bank.
On behalf of the Forrest Spence Fund, NEHS members created holiday cards which were distributed to the families at Le Bonheur’s FedEx house.
The SCA raised $200 for the St. Jude Make a Wish Foundation through the Macy’s Believe Campaign. They encouraged fellow students to write letters to Santa. For each letter submitted, Macy’s donated $1 to Make A Wish.
295 toys were collected for LeBonheur Children’s Hospital during the Forrest Spence Fund Toy Drive, which was sponsored by the NEHS.
Forrest Spence Fund Book Drive – the NEHS collected nearly 200 new books, which were given to infants and young children at Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital.
