Christ the King School devotes week to service projects

Published February 5, 2016

ATLANTA—Catholic schools place a strong emphasis on service, which is why Christ the King School in Atlanta celebrated the annual Catholic Schools Week with a week’s worth of service initiatives.

The week kicked off with Military Monday, in which students assembled care packages for deployed Navy Seals. The students also participated in Souper Bowl Tuesday, collecting cans of soup for Buckhead Christian Ministry; WAGS Wednesday, when families donated supplies for the Atlanta Humane Society; and Think of a Veteran Thursday, during which students made Valentines for veterans in the Atlanta Veterans Administration Medical Center.
