Community Service

  • Spartan February Collection: Prom Gowns for Belle of the Ball. The gowns may be dropped off in the student lounge or the Athletic Center 2/1- 2/24. They will be cleaned by Anton’s Cleaners. Belle of the Ball distributes cleaned prom dresses at no charge to high school junior and senior girls who could not otherwise afford to attend their school’s prom. Unlike other prom gown collection drives, this program culminates with a day-long boutique where deserving girls are invited for a day of personal shopping and pampering. Check out the 2016 Boutique Day Video.
  • Spartan April Collection: Pet supplies for NEADS and the Lowell Humane Society. Click to the links to view the items most needed.
  • For service opportunities offered through LA, Check out the CS calendar on the Community Service webpage, visit the CS board in the Student Lounge, or email Ms. Poulin
  • Students may also complete community service hours through LA or in their home community (with any non-profit). Simply complete the community service form and return it to Tanya Clark in student life.
