Community Service Festival Helps Area Organizations

On Saturday Episcopal hosted a Service Festival that included opportunities for students to volunteer for many organizations. ESJ for Animals created dog toys for the Humane Society, NHS created hearts with words of encouragement for hurricane victims; volunteers braided twine for stall doors for Hearts Hands & Hooves Too, and the Middle School Art Club created cards for Ronald McDonald House. ESJ students also matched up with a buddy from Daniel for the event and for kickball and lunch.

“Episcopal School of Jacksonville has always been a good partner with Daniel. They gave the students a chance to be selfless and serve others.  It was an enriching experience for all involved!” said Mike Platt of Daniel.

Daniel Club also offered face painting. National Honor Society accepted disaster relief and can donations. The Share Your Opinions Club informed attendees about the Literary Pros program. The Diversity Student Union encouraged involvement with City Rescue Mission; Upper School Community Service Council offered bottled water and sculpture creation and created cards for Wolfson Children’s Hospital; Middle School Community Service Council had volunteers cut pictures from magazines for Hope at Hand; volunteers could paint angels for Angels for Allison; and Warriors Wings and the Disaster Relief Club ran the concessions.
