Each year, our students, faculty, staff, and families come together for two important holiday community service initiatives. These include our Thanksgiving basket collections and our participation in the Roanoke Rescue Mission's annual Drumstick Dash. Details for both opportunities are listed below.
North Cross will be distributing Thanksgiving baskets on Tuesday November 24th from noon until 4 p.m. at Central Baptist Church, located at 1502 Staunton Ave, Roanoke VA 24017. The church has pledged to match our efforts with 30 complete meals, and Aldi grocery store is donating $25 gift cards to place in each basket. We anticipate providing over 60 complete baskets, and Upper school students will serve as volunteers in the meal giveaway.
We are also continuing our partnership with the Rescue Mission as volunteers for the Drumstick Dash. Proceeds from this event are used to provide over 1,500 meals to families in need. The Drumstick Dash will be held on Thursday, November 26 at 9 a.m. Student volunteers will assist the Rescue Mission on November 23 and 24 in preparation for the race. Please e-mail your division assistant if you are interested in volunteering at the Drumstick Dash.
Let's aim for record participation in these events!
