What is School Adoption All About?

This has taken on new importance in a time when our institutions are truly in need. School adoption takes many forms and has included such great work as:

  • Career Counseling & Workshops
  • Planting of flowers & trees and other landscaping projects
  • Delivery of school supplies collected
  • Long overdue painting of school buildings, playgrounds and parking lots
