In just a few hours, students from schools in North Fulton and Forsyth will hold a kick-off rally at the Ed Isakson-Alpharetta Family YMCA for the Bring on the Rain Day of Service.
The project is part of Flood Student Missions.
Students have made a $20 donation to participate in a day of serving the community, marking the Martin Luther King Jr. Holiday with service. More than 100 middle and high school students are expected to participate.
School chapters are set up in high schools to recruit and engage students to serve at local projects, to raise awareness about social injustices, and have “in house” projects to support work with community partners. Each chapter has a teacher sponsor, a chapter coordinator, and student leaders that oversee the chapter at each school.
School chapters include:
- Milton High School
- Chattahoochee High School
- Lambert High School
- Roswell High School
- South Forsyth High School
- Alpharetta High (in development)
- CHEER Homeschool Group (in development)
- Legacy Academy (in development)
