Hearts & Hands For Malvern
Stonebridge UMC partners with a local elementary school to help provide support and resources which help students achieve their greatest potential in these early education years. Throughout the year, our congregation volunteers their time in the classrooms, raises funds and supplies for teachers and students, provides a summer food program for students who may face hunger outside of school, hosts appreciation events for teachers and staff, and much more! Partner with us as we partner with the students, faculty, and staff at Malvern Elementary.
In 2017 we will:
•Pair every teacher with a Classroom Partner who will volunteer at least 1 hour a week in the classroom.
•Host a Summer Food Pantry that helps families with Malvern students who may otherwise be hungry.
•Host a Christmas Gift program for families with Malvern students who are in financial need.
•Volunteer as a part of the school-wide field day.
•Provide appreciation treats and luncheons for teachers and staff several times in the year.
•Provide school supplies to students in the Fall and classroom supplies to teachers in the Spring.
•And partner with the principal and PTA on any other projects needed.
•Most Importantly: We will build relationships with our neighbors in the community as we grow and learn together!
For more information, contact Pastor Courtney.
We are in need of 35 Classroom Partners at our partner school Malvern Elementary this year. Classroom Partners commit to serve at least one hour per week throughout the school year in a designated teacher’s classroom. Partners might read to students, help with Math activities, or assist the teacher in many other ways. If you are interested in becoming a Classroom Partner, please contact Pastor Courtney and include any grade level preferences you may have.
