Operation Christmas Child
During the months of October and November of each year the student body voluntarily participates in Operation Christmas Child, an outreach to youth in various poor nations throughout the world. Students and their families purchase toys, candy, classroom materials, and toiletries, and place them in a shoebox. The Operation Christmas Child organization then delivers them to a needy child.
During the months of November and December the student body voluntarily participates in Christmas Cheer. Christmas Cheer is a program run by our church, Fremont Community Church. Christmas Cheer is an outreach program to those individuals in the Alameda County who do not have the resources for Christmas gifts. Families take a gift tag(s) identifying a gender and age of a recipient. Families then go out, purchase a gift, attach the tag to the gift, and drop it off at the church or school office. During a Sunday in December, a group of volunteers get together, wrap the items, and deliver it to variousfamilies in the area.
Kimber Hills Helps!
Kimber Hills Academy students and their families wanted a tangible way to serve the local community. Students and parents started with a drive collecting over 300 items for families in need. The students then brought everything into Compassion Network for distribution. Some of the items collected were cereal, canned food items and warm jackets. This is another great example of the hands and feet of Jesus!
