Service Learning & Community Outreach

A principal component of a St. Mark’s education - and a tradition that is evident throughout our church and school community – is the practice of seeking out those in need and offering our support. We honor this tradition through fundraisers that happen during the school year in an effort to sustain our cherished causes.

The drives and causes listed here represent many of the organizations that our St. Mark’s constituents support on an annual basis:

  • HELP FOR HOPE (previously known as Dimes for Disney) – collects money to send Hope Rural School students on an experiential, educational field trip
  • ST. GEORGE’S FOOD PROGRAM – collects, delivers, and serves nutritious meals to the homeless and underprivileged
  • HEARTS OF PALM – rehabilitates homes for those in need and offers temporary housing for those in transition
  • FOOD PACKING FOR HAITI – packs food for children in Haiti and assists with other humanitarian efforts as needed
  • FOOD FOR FAMILIES – collects non-perishable food items for families in need during the Thanksgiving holiday
  • ADOPT-A-FAMILY – collects and provides Christmas gifts for Palm Beach County families
  • NATIONAL JUNIOR HONOR SOCIETY TOY DRIVE – collects Christmas toys for children and families in need
  • ST. MARK’S CHURCH ANNUAL CHRISTMAS CONCERT – raises funds to support St. Mark’s Church mission and ministry work
  • COINS FOR KENYA – supports the Mama Ada Foundation by underwriting tuition for students and seeds for farmers
