Chagrin Falls High School Seniors Serve Community Through Philanthropy Day

On October 13, Chagrin Falls High School senior class members volunteered at a variety of nearby organizations for the school’s annual Philanthropy Day. 

Service opportunities included helping clean up the gardens at Holden Arboretum, interacting with students at Gurney Elementary School and the Intermediate School. Other volunteer locations included Meals on Wheels, Life Act, Chagrin Falls Historical Society, and Santa’s Hide-a-Way Hollow. Philanthropy Day has been growing each year since 2014, when that year’s seniors ventured out beyond Chagrin Falls to volunteer in Ohio City. 

“When I became the assistant principal, I wanted to use this as an opportunity to engage students in meaningful community service and to build on the school’s relationships with community partners," said Assistant Principal Amanda Rassi, who organizes the day each year. "We believe that service work is a social responsibility and that a single person performing an act of kindness does have the power to make a difference. our students are making a difference.”
