Each spring we kick off our annual Do Good campaign for Shalom students, faculty, and staff.
This Do Good focus comes from Jesus' words in Acts 10:38 - "And Jesus went about doing good."
The focus word for this year is generosity. Proverbs 22:9 says, “The generous will themselves be blessed, for they share their food with the poor.”
Having a Do Good focus allows us to focus on the aspect of the Community Core Value of Shalom Christian Academy. Each year we take time to share in Chapel and classes on practical ways that we can develop a caring and supportive community on our campus and beyond.
This year for Do Good, Shalom is partnering with one of our students, Lena Irons-Zimmerman who is participating in the Leadership Franklin County Program to hold a school-wide food drive. Leena said, "We are all children of God, from the most affluent to the most destitute. As you know, Shalom teaches all of us the value of servanthood and community... I know this food drive will be of great help to the people served by Maranatha Ministries."
The food drive will be held February 21-25, 2022 at Shalom Christian Academy. Donations will be collected in the elementary lobby and the secondary lobby.
Acceptable donations include canned fruits, canned vegetables, canned soups, rice, pasta, cereal, canned sauces, condiments, peanut butter, jelly, and any other non-perishable foods.
Thank you for partnering with us to Do Good in our community!
