AC Middle Schoolers Help Nicaraguans With Bikes for School

Posted on January 4th, 2018 by Allendale Columbia School

Allendale Columbia has deepened its global impact in Nicaragua by initiating a relationship with the 2 Wheels Bike Project. The project’s founder, Alejandro Solano, believes that every child should have the chance for an education to help them break out of the cycle of poverty. Therefore, he provides bikes to children in need to help them get to school and assist their families with daily life.

AC middle schooler Keira Donnelly led the initiative to sell hand-made Nicaraguan bracelets to students in order to support the project. Due to her efforts and the generosity of the Middle School students, AC raised and donated $100 to the project. This means that two young children in El Sauce, Nicaragua, won’t have to walk over an hour to school any more. They will be able to use their new bikes to arrive safely and quickly to school.  (more…)

AC Middle School Students Host Empty Bowls Event

Posted on December 14th, 2017 by klapa

The Middle School Ceramics class held Allendale Columbia School’s third annual Empty Bowls event on Sunday, December 3rd at the Rochester Brainery. Empty Bowls is an international grassroots project to fight hunger, personalized by artists and art organizations on a community level. Many members of our AC community created over 125 bowls for the silent auction, including STEM students, the Global Engagement Club, Upper Schoolers, Lower Schoolers, faculty, and of course the Middle School Ceramics class. Additionally, artists in Rochester donated 18 vessels for a raffle and local businesses contributed delicious food and coffee for the fundraiser.

Ceramics students organized and ran the entire Empty Bowls event. In two hours, the students raised $1,347, which they donated to the Summer Meals for Kids program. Summer Meals for Kids is a joint venture between Foodlink and the City of Rochester, which provides breakfast and lunch to Rochester city students when school is not in session. The donation will go toward the expansion of Foodlink’s mobile Summer Meals for Kids, which will provide 5,000 meals this summer. You can also click here to see WROC cover this event as part of its Honor Roll.

One of the ways they have been working to help animals is through a series of podcasts they’ve directed and recorded themselves to educate the public about topics related to this important issue.
You can listen to the two podcasts they’ve created so far by clicking here. Great job, students!
