It’s been said that working to refresh others has a way of refreshing ourselves and that’s certainly proving to be the case for Christian Heritage Academy.
On November 3, the students, staff, and parent volunteers of Christian Heritage Academy will invest over 1,000 hours of community service to help a variety of local non-profit organizations fulfill their missions during their 6th annual Heritage Project. Several organizations like the Franklin Faith Network, God’s Food Pantry, the Roanoke Rescue Mission, and the Agape center will benefit from the many CHA hands that will be helping to make their work light for a day.
The Heritage Project also doubles as a school fundraising event where sponsorships are sought for the participants’ community service hours. This year, CHA is extremely grateful to kick off the Heritage Project with a large matching gift pledge from a small group of donors. Dollar for dollar, sponsorships raised through the school’s efforts will be matched through this gift up to $30,000.
“We would like to thank these donors for their significant gift in support of Christian education. We are grateful for their recognition of the impact that CHA is making and, as a result, are inspired to make an investment in the next generation of students,” said Head of School, Tony Quist
Last year, more than $64,000 in funds were raised through this effort and enabled CHA to provide financial assistance to parents who lacked the full financial means necessary to give their children a private Christian education. With a 12.5 percent enrollment increase to a record high of 162 students this year, CHA anticipates continued growth and an even greater need for 2018.
