Volunteering at Alcott
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 participated 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 Trunk or Treat, Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter events.
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.
For current needs see newsletter.
Prayers for the children, families and faculty of all Pontiac schools are always needed.
