The Tower Hill School Martin Luther King, Jr. Day Service Event will take place on Monday, Jan. 18 from 8:30 a.m. to 12 p.m. The day is optional for students, faculty and staff, however we would like as many people to participate as possible.
Our goal is to keep the event simple while supporting as many organizations as possible. The event schedule includes baking activities, exercising our gratitude muscles, coloring/decorating activities and collections for various local organizations:
Coloring/Writing Activities 9 a.m. – 12 p.m. - Coloring place mats for the Emmanuel Dining Room - Decorating paper lunch bags for the Sunday Breakfast Mission sandwiches - Gratitude exercising: Writing thank you notes (we will provide notes and postage)
