This year, the students at Lee Roy Myers Middle School will be giving back to our community in a big way! Every 3rd Saturday of the month, we will participate in a service project. Our projects will either be volunteering at Second Harvest or hosting school-wide clean up with the Chatham County Department of Sanitation.
Information on Second Harvest: Established in 1981 in Savannah Georgia, America’s Second Harvest of Coastal Georgia is a locally inspired, volunteer-driven nonprofit food bank and community partnering organization. Second Harvest serves as the food safety net for tens of thousands of children, senior citizens, low-income families, and people with disabilities who are at risk for hunger throughout Coastal Georgia.
Information on the Chatham County Department of Sanitation: The residents of Chatham County are committed to leaving the legacy of a healthy, sustainable community, society, and planet to future generations. Unfortunately, most people within our community are uncertain about how to turn that desire into action in practical and effective ways. Of those who have the knowledge, many fear that deprivation and discomfort are among the costs of taking action. The Resource Conservation Education Center addresses this need by providing individuals with direction to find the answers, the products, and the services that make sustainable choices not just manageable, but comfortable and profitable.
These volunteer opportunities go perfect with our school motto, curriculum and are very educational! This month’s volunteer opportunity is scheduled for Saturday, October 15, 2022. We will volunteer at Lee Roy Myers Middle School. We will host a school-wide day of clean-up. Students should arrive no later than 8:00 am, and we will be finished at 10:00am. If interested, please pick-up a permission slip form in the counseling office. We are asking that all forms be returned no later than 10/10/22.
