Our Lower School students participated in a new outreach this year called Change for Change. During the months of September and October, students brought in their extra change to provide a change of clothes for a local child in need. The outpouring of love and generosity from our students has been amazing! Many students joyfully shared stories of how they brought in all of their allowance to give away to another child in need. A kindergarten student even asked her dad if she could do extra chores around the house to earn money to donate. When the outreach was complete, the total amount that the students brought in was a whopping $2,160.15! All of the money raised will help 28 children at the Florida Baptist Children’s Home right here in Jacksonville! It has been exciting to see our students show compassion in action.
