The mission of our Adopt-a-School relationship with Guilford Elementary School is to help meet the physical, relational, and spiritual needs of Guilford students, families, and staff through service and generosity.

By leveraging the talents and resources of many volunteers, we have the opportunity to positively affect lives at Guilford Elementary while sharing the hope that is within us.

The Adopt-a-School program offers a variety of opportunities to serve the community with varying levels of time commitment and resources.

Guilford Elementary has vast needs, and no single organization could adequately fill all of these needs. In order to be sensitive to the leadership of the school, we have spent time with them, getting to know their needs and listening to them. From those discussions we have come up with a list of service areas that we hope will expand as we serve them faithfully and build their trust.
