For many years People’s people have been intertwined with the students and staff at Lincoln Elementary. We have had tutors and mentors there for as long as I can remember. We hold a special annual collection for them at the beginning of the church/school year.
We have done things like book collections so EVERY student had a book at their reading level of their own, collected snacks for the afterschool program, collected clothing for the Kid’s Closet, helped kids “shop” for small holiday gifts for family members—the list is long!
Our Lincoln School volunteers have helped students and staff making the personal connection that so many of the kids crave, assisting teachers in giving students more individualized attention in areas they struggle in and simply just being there as a consistent adult that cares.
After a two- year hiatus from in-person tutoring and mentoring due to the Corona Virus Pandemic, we are hoping to resume our previous level of personal connectedness. If you are interested in hearing more about volunteering at Lincoln School, please contact me at Jemaileen@yahoo.com
If there is one thing that Lincoln needs, it is more volunteers!
This year the Sunday Special Collection to benefit Lincoln falls on September 18thth, but donations can be made anytime during the month of September. You can be make a donation by sending a check to the church—be sure to mention in the memo line that it is intended for Lincoln School or if you prefer to make your donation online, please click the Donate Button on the church’s homepage and enter your donation in the box marked ‘Special Collections’. Teachers will have many needs this year and whatever we donate will be put to good use!
