CHILDREN UP

Churchville takes a, "kids helping kids," approach through their work with Children UP. Children UP is based in Elmhurst, while helping students in Uganda attend school and receive an education. Churchville's daily Snack Shack and annual F.A.M. Night help support the education of Okello Francis.

WOW - Highlights/Summary of Season Results: 

The sets for the drama productions added a strong visual to aid in the storytelling and were completed with professional quality.

Students participated in F.A.M. Night by creating their own booths, and selling their own artwork. They combined their knowledge of art and business. Ten percent of each booth’s sales were donated to charity, Children UP, to help a student in Uganda. The event had a great turn out and supported G.T.O. and the Variety Show.
