Baldwin Caps Off 10-Day Service Extravaganza
Posted 10/23/2015 10:39AM

Today, The Baldwin School is conducting four separate service projects in one day and recognizes the astounding efforts of our students and faculty members who are making this happen.

Beginning early this morning, Lower School students made lunches for Project HOME, which will be delivered later today. Mrs. Berger organized, and Mrs. Wilkes, Mrs. Amis, Ms. Lucia, Ms. Kouch, Mrs. Becker and Mrs. Friedman-Way supported the effort.

Our Middle School girls are supporting Makers Care and the Make-A-Wish Foundation with an out-of-uniform day and plane-making in the DREAM Lab, spearheaded by Mr. Barnes, our aviator for a day.

The entire school has been dropping off gifts for the Rift Valley Children's Village holiday present drive, expertly coordinated by Mrs. Evans and executed by our incredible advisors.

And later this afternoon, our Grade 5 will host an all-school bake sale for 10x10 Fund for girls' education, part of the all-Lower School effort to raise awareness about girls' education in developing countries. The bake sale would not be possible without Mrs. Powers and Mrs. Hansell, and the 10x10 fundraiser could not run annually without Mrs. Wilkes.

These efforts today cap off a 10-day service extravaganza that included our participation in the AIDS Walk, a bake sale for the AIDS Fund (thanks to US Service League), our all-school support of the American Cancer Society with Denim Day (thanks to Mrs. Ameisen), a fundraiser for Migrants Offshore Aid Station (thanks to Mrs. Davis' advisory), and of course, our MS Service Day (which could not have been pulled off without experienced advisors and chaperones).

Days like today show the incredible generosity of the Baldwin community and the ingenuity of our faculty and staff to create engaging, needs-based service projects.
