This past July, the Forest Hill Middle School Urban Serve group brought to life the old adage that your greatness is not what you have, it’s what you give. The teens joined us for a three-day campus beautification service project that included painting benches, refreshing the children’s garden, laying mulch and more.
Laura Wilson and Ellie Lacey of Forest Hill Church shared that the project provided a great opportunity to empower their students to serve others in their community in small and simple ways. Volunteer Ellie Golbus remarked, “I believe that serving Alexander is important because we are called to serve locally in our community. At Alexander I am given the chance to meet kids that have had a difficult upbringing and help them to build healthy relationships. I am fortunate to be raised in my family and serving Alexander allows me an opportunity to give back.”
Alexander welcomes nearly 1,200 volunteers to our various campus locations each year. Volunteers can serve in several different capacities, including beautification and clean-up, tutoring, lunch and dinner buddies and more. Interested in volunteer opportunities?
