February 2017 Parent E-Blast: Community Service Special Edition

Did you know that EDGE Teen Center has a Community Service Program 4 DAYS of the week that leaves EDGE around 3 pm and on most days and returns by 6 pm??

Our Community Service Coordinator, Christine Dixon drives our EDGE van and serves alongside EDGE students at different agencies throughout the community, Monday through Thursday every week.

Below are the places that EDGE teens serve at throughout the week:

MondayChesterwood Village– Students would depart EDGE at 3:15 pm and return by 6 pm. Students will work with residents in the memory loss care unit.

TuesdayHamilton Living Water– Students would depart EDGE at 3:15 pm and return by 6 pm. Students will help elementary age students with their homework, will read with them, and on nice days our teens can go play with younger students on their playground.

WednesdayMatthew 25 Ministries– Students would depart EDGE at 4 pm and return by 8 pm. This opportunity provides students with a longer time to serve to get more hours in. Students will be working in different areas at M25M warehouse organizing and sorting donated items from books to clothes and usually recycling old paint.

ThursdayPAWS adoption center– Students would depart at 3:15 pm and return by 6 pm. Students will work at the center helping out with daily cleaning and organizing to help keep the center running as well as participate in projects like landscaping that the ladies are not able to perform themselves. Further orientation is required to be able to work more with the animals. Information about orientation is given at the time of sign up.

Does your teen need something to do on SATURDAYS? Our Community Service Program also does service a couple Saturdays a month. Students typically serve in the time frame of 8 am- 2 pm.

Please let Annie know if you and your teen are interested in signing up or to just learn more about the opportunities. We would love to get your teen involved in the opportunity to serve the community they live in. Click here for a packet of information about our Community Service program.
