Service & Outreach


The Service Committee’s mission is to help our students become people of action when they are exposed to problems in their society. We encourage projects that 1) meet real community needs, be they local or global, and 2) emerge naturally from the curriculum and serve to reinforce classroom learning. Ultimately, we want our programs to be initiated, planned, and executed by HFE students, with our structural support.   

School-Wide Drives:

The Heards Ferry community holds a few school-wide collection drives each year to help community partners.  Kids and parents are invited to participate by donating items, helping to collect items during carpool, and sorting items collected.  To encourage the kids to get involved, competitions are held by grade levels or teams.  More information will be sent home in Thursday folders before each collection drive.


November 1st & 4th: Halloween Candy Drive & Thank You Cards for Military

Collect candy to re-distribute to our military along with thank you cards.  Collection during morning bus / carpool with assigned bins per grade level.  


February 5th - 7th: Children’s Book Drive for Mini Libraries and Title 1 Schools
Collect used books for mini libraries and Title 1 Schools (conveniently falls after HFE book drive).  Collection bins will be on the grade level floors. 


April 22nd - 24th: CAC Food Drive
Participate in city wide drive to stock the CAC’s food pantry. Collection will be during morning bus/carpool with assigned bins per grade level.
