Vanguard has always believed in the value of community service and teaching youth about the importance of giving back. We recognize that Waco has an array of nonprofit organizations and that families may not be aware of these benefits within the Waco area. With this in mind, we are excited to announce a Community Service Fair Day on October 7, 2015 on our campus. We would be honored to have you be a part of this Community Service Fair Day. Please read through the event details below and reply back at firstname.lastname@example.org to join.
Waco area nonprofit organizations will be invited to have a booth at the Community Service Fair Day. Organizations will be provided with a table, tablecloth, chairs, snacks and lunch.
Why attend? Inform youth about your organization and provide information about volunteering opportunities.
Who is invited? Vanguard School students and parents. Public and private schools with students in grades 7-12 will be invited to send up to 10 students to this event.
