On May 2nd, over 315 Firewall students, their mentors, staff, and volunteers completed service projects throughout Broward County as a part of the Serve-A-Thon. This annual event is intended to show students in the after-school program the importance of giving back to their community.
Firewall students from Pompano Beach Middle, Blanche Ely High and Crystal Lake Middle cleaned up the outside area at Broward’s Children Center. Firewall students from the Indian Ridge Middle Center served at ARC Broward’s Recycling Center. These students cleaned, took apart, and separated computer parts. At Hope South Florida’s God’s Little Lambs Childcare Center, Plantation Middle and Bair Middle Centers restored the outside landscaping and playground area to be used by the children of homeless families. Western High Center students served at Davie Pine Island Park, repainting parking lots and landscaping.
The headlining sponsor of Serve-A-Thon for the past two years has been Regent Bank. Their support was invaluable to the success of the Serve-A-Thon. Firewall was able to provide its students with the opportunity to serve because of the Leadership Broward Foundation who organized and facilitated Serve-A-Thon
