Student Life

Service Learning

Current Service Learning Collections

Students are currently collecting the following items for non-profit groups:

  • canned goods
  • seasonal clothing
  • toiletries
  • dental care items

In keeping our commitment to enable our students to “develop confidence in themselves, demonstrate respect for others, and assume responsibility for their own actions” Elmwood Franklin believes that community service is essential part of educating the “whole child.” Students participate in a variety of service projects that are student-driven and reflective of the current interests of our student body and the current needs of our community-at-large.  Past service projects have included:

  • donation of 400 books to the Literacy Volunteers of Buffalo and Erie County
  • Thanksgiving food drive to benefit the Food Bank of WNY and the Ronald McDonald House of Buffalo
  • winter clothing drive to benefit St. Luke's Mission and Public School 18

Our students follow the lead of our dedicated faculty and staff, as well as our parent base, who are consistently involved in a variety of volunteer efforts across our community. At Elmwood Franklin, community service is not a requirement but a way of life.
