The PTA Community Service Committee was established to teach and inspire our Glebe students to develop a sense of social responsibility, empathy and connection to their local and global community. Our goal is to instill a lifelong habit of service in every student to make the world a better place.
The Community Service Committee has hosted these kinds of events previously:
- Fall Stream Clean Up at Bon Air Park
- Thanksgiving Meal Drive
- Giving Tree Holiday Drive
- Spring Community Event
- Food Drives
- Glebe Nourishment Food Assistance and Toiletries Programs
If you have any suggestions or would like to help, please feel free to contact a member of the committee.
When schools closed in March 2020 and the Glebe Food Pantry was no longer available to families, neighborhood community organizations joined together to create Glebe Giving with a simple purpose: to provide food assistance to families in need with children attending Glebe. Since the school year began, more Glebe families have needed assistance. Donate to Glebe Giving using PayPal at GlebeGiving@gmail.com. 100% of these donations are used to purchase Safeway gift cards for Glebe families. The Glebe PTA endorses Glebe Giving, but it does not organize or manage Glebe Community Giving or any similar effort.
Food for Others Fundraiser
The Glebe Community Service Committee proudly presented “Start the New Year Off Helping Others” – a Fundraiser for Food for Others, an award-winning nonprofit organization that fights hunger in our community by distributing donated food to NoVA residents and their kids.
Why: There are children in our community who do not have enough to eat during the weekends, when they are without access to school feeding programs. Your family can help by providing “Power Packs.”
What: A Power Pack is a bag that supplies children with two sets of breakfasts, lunches, dinners, and snacks of pre-selected non-perishable foods that are easy to make and consume over a weekend.
How: Glebers purchased supplies and assembled Power Packs for several hours!
