November 30, 2009 / Appen Newspapers - ALPHARETTA - Every month, students from flood, a Student Community Missions organization, are given the chance to serve many people in the community.
On the first week of each month, student chapter leaders hold monthly meetings to educate classmates about current projects and also give them the opportunity to share stories of serving from the previous month. Throughout the month, students are reminded via e-mails, Facebook, and phone calls about weekly projects and opportunities for them to serve.
"When you are on the outside looking in, Alpharetta High School exemplifies great academics and achievements,"said Heaven Nkuski, president of the Alpharetta Chapter. "However, on the inside we are a very divided and diverse school. This is where flood comes in. By bringing flood into the school, we are trying to bring our students closer together by helping the community and serving the ones who need it most."
Alex Close, president of the Milton High School Chapter summed up his dream for the Milton Chapter.
"Our goal at Milton is to get students serving and build relationships with people in the community to the point that flood at Milton is carried on once I am gone to college,"he said.
Flood partners with more than 15 non-profit organizations and has students from more than 20 schools come out and serve regularly. More information is available atwww.floodstudentmissions.org or by calling 770-289-1834.
