PACS Students Participate in World and Local Mission Projects
In the weeks leading up to Thanksgiving Break, the Prince Avenue community has been hard at work with two school-wide mission projects, one to benefit children across the world and another to benefit families in our local community.
The school participated in Operation Christmas Child by preparing boxes full of necessities and toys to be sent to children in other countries. The love of Christ will be shared with the children as they receive the boxes as a Christmas present through the ministry of Samaritan’s Purse. This year, Prince students prepared 741 boxes for this special project.
In addition to Operation Christmas Child, PACS students participated in the Pound for Pound Challenge sponsored by the PACS Beta Club. Students brought in canned food to be donated to the Food Bank of Northeast Georgia. Classes competed school-wide to add to the enthusiasm of the food drive, and each day, Beta Club members would collect and count cans from each classroom. Mrs. Crane’s second grade won the elementary competition by collecting over 304 cans, the 8th grade won the middle school by collecting over 284 cans, and the seniors won the high school division by collecting over 289 cans. All total, PACS students donated 3,350 cans of food that will help families in our community during the holiday season.
