Our Community Service Projects
Garden Elementary School students support their community in many ways. Click on the titles below to learn more about their service projects.
Coins for Caring
Garden Gophers have a yearly coin drive to support Tulare’s Light House Rescue Mission. Each year we raise several hundred dollars to donate to the outreach needs of women in our community.
Relay for Life
For several years, Garden School has put together a team for Tulare’s large Relay for Life event each October. Staff members help raise money and participate in the 24-hour walk at Bob Mathias Stadium. In addition, students from sixth grade and student council help with the event by filling and organizing luminary bags for the luminary ceremony at the event. Garden School students have been an important part of the yearly Relay for Life event.
Soda Pop Tops
Student Council led the school in collecting pull-tabs off cans to benefit Valley Children’s Hospital. Kindergarten through sixth grade helps collect thousands of pop tops each year. Their efforts help families of patients at Valley Children’s Hospital with housing costs while children are going through medical treatment.
United for Good
This year Garden has teamed up with elementary schools throughout the city of Tulare to support the ALS Golden West Chapter. The Golden West Chapter of The ALS Association is dedicated to the fight against ALS in many ways - funding global research, supporting scientific and clinical collaboration, providing professional care management services to families facing ALS, partnering with multidisciplinary ALS clinics and centers, connecting people with ALS to clinical trials, increasing ALS awareness, driving important public policy initiatives, and bringing the ALS community together.
