On Going Service Projects:
Since our beginning The Creek has worked with the Monument Crisis Center providing seasonal donations as well as monthly bags of beans and rice. During the winter months The Creek students will bag donations of small (hotel size) toiletries. We deliver these gifts in mid-December but take donations of toiletries year round. If you have those little bottles of shampoo, conditioner, body wash, toothpaste etc. lying around your home, we would be delighted to take them off your hands!
In the spring we create “Birthday Bags”, filling the bags with cake mixes, frosting, balloons, party hats and brightly colored cups and plates for children who might not have the means for a birthday celebration. Like the toiletries, we happily take donations all year in anticipation of this project.
Our monthly community service project is our Beans and Rice Wednesday. On the last Wednesday of each month, students bag beans and rice for the Crisis center and we also have beans and rice for snack that afternoon.
