On March 30, Western Albemarle High School Leadership is organizing the second annual “WAHS with a Cause,” a school-wide community service day. The goal of “WAHS with a Cause” is to get the entire school involved with civic engagement in the Crozet/Charlottesville community. Last year, WAHS with a Cause successfully coordinated roughly 30 service projects, based both at Western Albemarle High School and in the Crozet/Charlottesville community. Volunteers consisted of nearly 1,000 students and faculty members. Throughout the day volunteers packaged over 200 “Snack Packs” that were delivered to local elementary schools, making sure that food-insecure students were able to have snack food over Spring Break. There were also several beautification projects at WAHS that helped unify the student body. Off-campus, WAHS provided transportation for over 300 students to spend the day volunteering at a regional food bank, elementary schools, the ASPCA, and other places in the community.
WAHS Leadership welcomes any project ideas from the Crozet community. WAHS Leadership is also looking for community sponsors to help make the day a success. Any questions or inquires can be directed to [email protected]
