Volunteering at Alcott
Distributing Backpacks to Alcott Elementaary Kids
We are kicking-off the school year at Alcott by partnering with Flagstar bank to distribute already packed backpacks at the school welcome back picnic.
In the fall of 2006, Everybody's Church initiated a relationship with Louisa May Alcott Elementary School in Pontiac. It began with a small cadre of tutors and has expanded to more than three-dozen tutors working with the students on a weekly basis. In addition we have assisted in reopening their library, providing a computer lab, i-pads and funding for a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) program, appreciation meals for faculty, and food and clothing for children and families in need.
This fall we are participating in a district-wide Back to School Rally and, in partnership with Flagstar Bank, provided backpacks with school supplies for each Alcott student. Other events in partnership with the Pontiac community and other churches include Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter baskets of food.
How You Can Help
Literacy tutors are needed to work with children one-on-one or in small groups. No experience is necessary. An introduction to the program and training are provided. Contact Cindy Merten (click here) for more information.
Prayers for the children, families and faculty of all Pontiac schools are always needed.
