Lakehill recently held its the third annual Volunteer Fair in the school's Lydia and James Perry Community Room and the Student Commons. Students were able to meet with 15 different charitable organizations, learning more about their missions and the volunteer opportunities available.
Participants were Bonton Farms, Catholic Charities/The Brady Center, C.C. Young, Community Partners of Dallas, Crossroads Community Services, Dallas Children's Advocacy Center, Feed My Starving Children, Hunger Busters, Jewish Family Service, Jubilee Park and Community Center, Meals on Wheels, Reading Partners, Voice of Hope, and the Wilkinson Center.
The Fair gave seventh graders through high school seniors an opportunity to broaden their volunteer horizons and find new ways to give back to their Dallas community. As one of those students, I appreciated the chance to network and communicate with a wide variety of volunteer partnerships and explore many new avenues for service.
Together, Lakehill students give more than 15,000 hours of volunteer service to their community.
