Walk for Education
Please join us for our annual Walk for Education on Saturday, November 24th in Santa Monica. This year, we are happy to announce that Christ the Good Shepherd American Coptic Orthodox Church has joined our efforts in co-sponsoring this event. This year’s theme is community service and volunteerism. Our high school and college students are always asking us how we can support our Coptic community and especially our Coptic children. This is a great opportunity to give back to your community by helping us make christmas packages. At the event, we will have stations set-up to make packages full of goodies and school supplies for other high school students. Many students have found that this experience significantly improved their chances to get scholarships as well as admissions in universities of their choice.
Universities are looking for well-rounded students who can excel not only in the classroom but also in the community. CEF is a strong supporter of community service, not only as a means to get into a university but also as a way for young adults to learn at a very early age the value of the words “It is better to give than to receive.”
Please join us in the spirit of community service and do your part to help others help themselves in pursuit of their academic dreams.
Looking forward to seeing you there !!!
