A vital part of Frontiers is our commitment to doing various Service Projects each year to give our students and staff the opportunity to "give back" to our communities. We believe that is is important to teach our students the value of giving of themselves to help those in need. Our projects take many forms--from collecting money or items for a worthy cause, to making handmade gifts for others or simply saying "thank you."
Past service projects include the “Love BEARS All Things” (collecting new teddy bears for Rankin County public safety officials); creating Easter cards for local nursing homes and hospitals; collecting canned goods for food pantries; creating care packages for Frontiers military parents serving in Iraq; collecting pet supplies for CARA; collecting donations to purchase gift cards for pediatric burn patients at Christmas—“Shop with the Doc”, adopting the new satellite Baptist Children’s Home in Star in 2012, recognizing our many branches of law enforcement in our area with our “LEO – Law Enforcement Appreciation Day,” and teaming up with Rankin County law enforcement to “STUFF THE S.W.A.T. TRUCK" with toys to help needy children all over our county have a better Christmas
Our biggest project is this year (2019-2020) was supporting The Christmas House, epicenter for all things "holiday" at Mississippi State Hospital whose sole purpose is to assure that no patient or resident is forgotten during the holiday season. Sites collected various board games, leisure items, stationary items, hats, gloves, socks, blankets, and personal care items, among other donations as requested by hospital staff based on individual needs and interest. It was a HUGE success!
Thank you to all of our students and parents that so wholeheartedly participate in these projects through both time and financial support.
