SANDY SPRINGS, Ga. -- It’s not every day that you can do something to help the homeless, improve the environment, feed the hungry, help rescued animals, and even give some aid to Africa. But Holy Innocents’ Upper-Schoolers did all of that and more on Oct. 2 during the annual Great Day of Service.
Students and faculty spent a day away from campus volunteering at 15 sites around Metro Atlanta, including Foster Care Support, Furkids, the Chattahoochee Nature Center, Covenant House, Books for Africa, the South View Cemetery, Habitat for Humanity, and The Salvation Army.
And accolades rolled in from workers at the sites where HIES workers volunteered.
“The group from Holy Innocents’ did a phenomenal job today sorting and packing at Books For Africa,” wrote Development Assistant Jen Hale. “We just wanted to thank the students for their service and commend them on a job very well done.”
