Each year in August, As I Plant This Seed undertakes a back-to-school supply drive, where K-12 students receive the necessary supplies to begin their school year prepared to learn. In addition to school supplies, the drive hosts a series of activities to keep our participants engaged and interacting with positive adult role models. Guest speakers are invited from all different professional walks, including, entrepreneurs, professional athletes, teachers, psychologists, social workers, community leaders, and the list goes on.
Each year in December, As I Plant This Seed holds a Christmas Banquet where children and families within the community join together for a night of food, fellowship and fun. It is our goal to provide a sense of family and community in an area where these core values have escaped many households. In addition to dinner, it is our goal to have each registered child assigned to a donor who will take on the responsibility of providing 1-3 items on a child’s Christmas wish list.
