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
United for good is a joint effort of middle schools across the district to raise money for a deserving cause. Every year, students raise money through t-shirt sales and a variety of other fundraising opportunities held throughout our district.
