Service Projects

Many of the things we need can wait. The child cannot. Right now is the time his bones are being formed, his blood is being made, and his senses are being developed. To him we cannot answer ‘Tomorrow;’ his name is ‘Today.’”

- Gabriela Mistral

At Heritage School, we want our students to grow in compassion, to learn about both our local and global “neighbors in need,” and to find ways to share from our abundance. Our students collect donations for UNICEF. They donate to food banks in Salem. They provide Christmas gifts for children at Salem’s St. Francis Shelter for Homeless Families. One of our favorite projects is our involvement with Books of Hope, in which our students create books for children in Uganda, many of whom have suffered devastation at the hands of terrorist rebels. See the Statesman Journal newspaper article about Heritage School and Books of Hope here.
