Christian Heritage Academy's annual Heritage Project is held each fall in an effort to provide service hours to local non-profit organizations while also raising annual operating funds for the school. This effort involves students in grades K4-12 performing more than 1000 service hours for the Roanoke Rescue Mission, the Stepping Stone Mission of Franklin County, Heavenly Manna, the Agape Center, Rocky Mount Church of God Food Pantry, and the Franklin Faith Network. On this day, students, faculty and parent volunteers work alongside staff members of these organizations to assist in carrying out a variety of tasks to assist them in fulfilling their missions. The Heritage Project also doubles as a school fundraising event where sponsorships are sought for the participants’ community service hours.
"We want our students to develop a sincere love for their community and a deep desire to make a positive difference on behalf of Jesus wherever He may lead them in life," said Tony Quist, Head of School at CHA.
