Prevail Charter’s teachers and leadership did
some heavy lifting before returning to the classroom this school
“Heavy lifting” isn’t an exaggeration. As part of
this year’s back-to-school professional development and team building exercise,
Prevail staff packaged and prepared more than six tons of vegetables for
Gleaners, a local charity.
Prevail staff and leadership happily volunteered
their time to Gleaners, because this organization is near and dear to the heart
of Prevail. Gleaners had worked with the Prevail Charter community this year, so
it felt natural to give back.
Prevail staff helped Gleaners package potatoes and
cabbage and then fulfill and confirm actual orders. In that process, Prevail
staff handled about 13,000 pounds of product, which will impact the lives of
over 14,000 people in the community.
A second-grade teacher said, “Once our volunteer
time was complete and the number of people we impacted was shared, my heart was
full. Loved it!”
