Where Giving Meets Giving Back
We’re launching a new fundraising initiative this spring: the Serve-A-Thon! Ashwood Waldorf School partners with community nonprofits to offer two community-wide days of service (the Serve-A-Thon). All of our students, as well as faculty, administrators, and family volunteers, will participate in community service projects. Ashwood families will solicit sponsors for their service.
Funds raised through Serve-A-Thon sponsorships will support Ashwood Waldorf School. Raising funds is a tangible way for school families to work together in support of their wonderful school. Our goal is to raise $25,000. When you sponsor an Ashwood family in our community Serve-A-Thon, your support is twofold. Your donations support Ashwood Waldorf School while our Serve-A-Thon activities support the larger Midcoast community.
Between March 15 and the end of April, we are asking families to collect sponsorships for their participation in the Serve-A-Thon. Participants will be able to collect donations directly from sponsors or direct them to their individual Serve-A-Thon website pages, where they can donate online. There will be fabulous prizes throughout!
On Friday, April 29, students will be volunteering with their classmates, teachers, administrators, and parent volunteers at a number of area nonprofits. Some of these include Youthlinks, Pope Memorial Humane Society, P.A.W.S., Tanglewood, and the Loaves and Fishes lunch program. Saturday, April 30 will be a day of service from 10-2, serving many of the same nonprofits as well as Hospitality House, and a music program at Quarry Hill. We hope all Ashwood families will participate. This is a wonderful opportunity to give back to the wider community.
Saturday evening we will have a chance to kick back and relax after a job well done. Come dance the night away to the salsa rhythms of Primo Cubano. A little rusty on your salsa moves? Not to worry, there will be half an hour of instruction before the dance, not to mention a cash bar. Bring your friends and neighbors; come early (you don’t want to miss the door prizes!) and stay late! This is sure to be an event to remember!
Join us on April 30 to volunteer from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. You can sign up here.
