Difference Maker

Our Difference Maker program exists to provide meaningful opportunities for our students and families to engage in a growing awareness of the needs in our local community, and tangible ways to make a difference in those places.  Our Difference Maker Program Architect Ali Bray  works with the elementary and middle school staff to roll out these programs and walk with our students who have been awarded “Difference Maker Grants” as they take their ideas and proposals and put them into action.

All service projects that will launched during the 2018-2019 school year will be STUDENT LED. Attached is a newsletter from Mrs. Bray that will provide the details on our first Difference Maker project launched by a group of our students who are passionate about the issue of homelessness. They are working behind the scenes to collect the items needed for all of our MCS students to be able to make their own “Blessing Bag” for the homeless. They are also executing a Fall Food Drive that will serve to stock food pantries for two local organizations (S.O.S. and Project Giving Light) who serve the homeless community in powerful ways.

If you have questions, please contact our Difference Maker Program Architect Ali Bray at abray@marinerscs.org.
