Service Projects

As a Friends school, Westfield takes the mission of Quaker education seriously. Westfield works to ensure students learn qualities of responsibility and concern for others and the greater good. Every class is involved with several service projects and there are many cross-school initiatives that take place every year.

Some of the highlights from our community service projects include:

Pre-K collect “Groceries for Families,” every other week. One Pre-K family provides two grocery bags of fresh fruit and vegetables for a home that helps single moms and their babies. The children also collect tabs from soda cans for the Ronald McDonald House in Camden to help families stay during hospitalization and treatment for their children.

First graders bring in various food items every week to contribute to “Food for Friday” (distributed to area food pantries) and also collect used eye glasses for the Lions Club.

Fourth grade collects money every October for UNICEF and also write letters to students from Japan.

Fifth grade students showed how much they care for animals with a collection of food and blankets for the Burlington County Animal Shelter last fall.

Eighth graders help collect “Teens for Jeans” to help homeless teenagers in our communities.

A few additional service projects for the 2015-2016 school year are:
