At The Blue Elephant, we love the community of Frisco, and we feel blessed to get to teach its brightest young minds. We also love giving back in other ways, too! Community involvement is a foundational belief here at The Blue Elephant, and we believe that part of an enriching education is teaching your child to understand the importance of giving back. We’re proud to say our little learners regularly participate in volunteering, social involvement, and civic activities.
The following is an overview of the community involvement activities we support. If community involvement is an important value you want your child to learn, then contact us to find out more about the Blue Elephant and to schedule a tour.
We recruited our community of learners to sell fun cookbooks in support of The Samaritan Inn, an excellent homeless shelter in McKinney. We’re happy to report it was a huge success! We raised $1,300 in support of The Samaritan and the good work they do! After completing the fundraiser, we took our students over for a tour and information session. The kind folks at The Samaritan Inn were very friendly to our students, giving us a thorough tour and answering all of our questions. Our students learned a lot about what it’s like in a homeless shelter and how important they are to our community. And, they got the satisfaction of contributing to a wonderful cause!
We teamed up with Carter BloodCare to hold a blood drive with our students, faculty, and staff. The day was a huge success, where we collected 23 units of blood. Each unit of blood can save three lives, meaning our school community helped save 69 lives! We held the blood drive in honor of Lainey Thomas and Tim Dillard to raise cancer awareness at our school and educate our students on this important cause. Our entire North Texas learning center community felt great about their accomplishments!
We’re hosting a St. Jude Trike-A-Thon!
Our parents joined their little learners in raising funds to help support the kids of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Their fundraising efforts helped ensure that families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing, or food — because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.
We believe community involvement is another essential part of helping our little learners grow into the best people and citizens they can be. And, these events are just a few examples of the multitude of community involvement events we hold at The Blue Elephant. You can be sure we’ll be involving our students in holding many more canned food drives, blood drives, clothing drives, and fundraisers in the future!
