Community Service

Paws for a Cause

Jackson’s community service initiative is designed to educate Jackson students and their families about people in need in our community and the organizations that exist to help them. Ultimately, our goal is to raise awareness about less fortunate people and give Jackson students opportunities to make a contribution towards helping them. By partnering with charitable and philanthropic organizations on service projects, Jackson students and their families can experience how working together can make a positive difference.

Please contact communityoutreach@wtjackson.org with any questions.

Community Service Projects

Holiday Helpers – Jackson families have the opportunity each year to help children in need in the Atlanta Public School system by committing to purchase gifts during the holidays. Visit the Holiday Helpers page for more information and look for a sign up genius in late fall and help make the holidays a little brighter for these children.

The Bert Show’s Big Thank You – In the fall, students participate in a project sending letters of thanks to soldiers stationed or deployed outside the United States on Thanksgiving Day. More information including pick up dates will be provided by the teacher. Visit www.thebertshow.com/the-bert-shows-big-thank-you/ for more information.

Rise Against Hunger Project — Jackson families pack 10,000 nutrient rich meals, working together in a high energy, hands on assembly line.

Clothing Donations – Unclaimed clothing from the Lost & Found areas at both campuses are collected and donated to charity several times a year.
