EPATT Gives Back

In the EPATT Middle & High School Groups students are encouraged to be thankful for what they have and appreciate their blessings by giving to others less fortunate.  This November every MSG and HSG student participated in at least one of the following community service projects:

  • Project Gratitude: Wrote thank you cards and sent leftover Halloween candy to our troops. EPATT’s care packages were sent to Okinawa, Japan to grateful service men and women!
  • Project Rally: Tutored Kindergarten and 1st graders from FairmeaBrandondow and Hoover schools.
  • **Acterra Tree Planting: Planted trees to beautify the campus of East Palo Alto Charter School and helped improve the habitat for native insects, birds, fish and other animals by planting native plants in the Bay Lands of East Palo Alto.
  • Ecumenical Hunger Program: Assisted in sorting, preparing and distributing food to local East Palo Alto residents in need during Thanksgiving.
  • Quarry Turkey 10k/Marathon: Ran 6 miles (10K race) and their registration proceeds were donated to the Alameda Food Bank.
