Baldwin’s Upper School students are participating in a spring day of service on April 8 and will serve a record 12 organizations. The girls, along with the support and guidance of their deans, advisors, and chaperons will spread out across the Delaware Valley to serve those in need.

Grade IX students will be serving children in need by sorting and organizing supplies at Cradles to Crayons in Conshohocken, PA, working directly with children at The Clarke School in Bryn Mawr, PA, and gardening and packaging meals for those in need through the SHARE Food Program in Philadelphia.

Grade X students will focus on environmental service by restoring structures, planting trees, rebuilding trails, mulching, planting, weeding and other tasks. They will serve at Riverbend Environmental Education Center in Gladwyne, PA, Friends of Wissahickon Park in Northeast Philadelphia, and Schuylkill River Banks organization.

Grade XI students will concentrate their day of service around food access and hunger relief. They will be packaging meals at the hunger relief center of Philabundance in Philadelphia, and will prepare food, serve lunch and work in the gardens of The Neighborhood Center in Camden.

Grade XII students will focus on the needs of the local community by serving at The Bryn Mawr Thrift Shop, Eldernet, Main Line Adult Day Center, and The Village.

In addition, earlier last month during Middle School Mini-Week, students in Grades VI – VIII had the opportunity to sign up for a service-learning class dedicated to serving the needs of the local community. Students served off-site at three locations in the Greater-Philadelphia area, impacting needs such as creating safe communities, providing hunger relief for those who lack secure access to food, and developing community and a warm meal for the homeless. Students celebrated their service by compiling a poster presentation to share with other MS students.
