Community Harvest Project is exceptionally grateful to hundreds of students from four of our incredible school partners: Mill Pond Middle School, North Street Elementary School, St. Marks School, and Goddard Scholars Academy at Sullivan Middle. These schools have each visited our farms countless times and donated over 3,500 hours of service at our farms. This month, these students went above and beyond by coordinating and participating in some great fundraising for CHP’s mission!
Mill Pond School held a student Read-A-Thon for 6th graders as an educational fundraising program. Students were sponsored by family and friends to achieve their reading goals and rewarded by their sponsors with a donation to the chosen non-profit. CHP is proud to be part of their learning and honored to once again be the recipients of a donation for their hard work. We were also privileged to be round table representatives at your Model U.N. Summit and learned so much!
North Street Elementary School and Goddard Scholars Academy at Sullivan Middle both raised money for CHP though our Dimes for Dinners program this month. St. Mark’s School has been volunteering in our fields this season and wanted to participate in our Adopt-A-Row and Adopt-A-Tree programs. They generously adopted a row of broccoli and are excited to watch it grow this season!
Together, students from these schools showed that every dime counts and cumulatively donated $7,200 to Community Harvest Project. We are so humbled by the enthusiasm of students who visit our farms and thankful for their generosity and spirit. Thank you all!
