Academy Christmas Gifts

In March 2020 we saw that our community was in need in wake of Covid-19, out of that need the vision our food pantry was born. This is a place that if an Academy family finds that they are in need we will do our best to make the resources available. This is one of the tangible ways you can partner with the academy is by donating can good and nonperishables. If you are interested in hosting a food drive or dropping off donations please contact us below for more information. 

This summer, we have a tremendous honor launching our first-ever high school program, with the first group of students that started with us in 2017. If you would like to sponsor one of our high school students as started their next chapter in the program, please contact us below.

This Christmas will look very different for many families this holiday season. If you are looking for a way to impact your community right where you are and don’t know where to start. We would be more than happy to get you connected with a family in need so that no one goes without this holiday season. Please contact us below for more information.
