Brookstone Upper School to hold Day of Service

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - Brookstone School students and faculty members from the Upper School will be serving the Columbus community in a variety of ways on Friday, October 26 from 9:30 a.m. until 12:30 p.m.

All Upper School students will be involved in one of seventeen different projects that will serve the community.

Projects will take place on the Brookstone campus and in the community.  Some students will travel to Boys and Girls Club,  Open Door Community House, PAWS, and Valley Rescue Mission, to name a few.   Other students will remain on campus to host a Fall Festival for participants from Easter Seals and Anne Elizabeth Shepherd Home, or help build composting bins for campus.

Some students will also help with Habitat for Humanity, Trees Columbus, Feeding the Valley and the clean-up effort with the Chattahoochee Whitewater project.

In addition to serving these community partners, students will also have a tour of their site and learn about the mission of each organization.  They will be actively serving and learning about all of the many wonderful organizations we have in the Columbus area.

This year's Day of Service is the seventh annual Upper School Day of Service.  Also in October, Brookstone Lower and Intermediate School students had their Week of Service in which all students in Pre-K through Fifth Grade served the community through a variety of projects.  The Middle School Day of Service will take place in the spring.

Brookstone School is committed to developing the whole child and the Servant Leadership department focuses on helping students to live out the attitude of "Serving Others, While Developing as Leaders".  Through the days of service, students are able to learn about the Columbus community and actively serve and help others.
