Allendale Elementary Participates in Global Giving

The 2nd-5th grades at Allendale Public participated in the Global Giving Project before the holiday break. Through the generosity of these students, they were able to raise over $2900 to sponsor 10 students for their entire school year at Kito Pre and Primary Technology Academy in Tanzania ( ).

We are so proud of their willingness to think outside of themselves to make a difference in the lives of these deserving children! The founder of the school, Andrea Kitomary, was extremely grateful and expressed that this truly is the school’s lifeline. Without this donation, the school would not be able to afford to continue educating the students that are financially unable to pay the school fees. Allendale students and staff are amazing!!

Thank you so much for supporting this project.10915160_898547500189726_6522894414016080425_n

participating on the varsity basketball team, for the third consecutive year, and was a two time
all-conference honorable mention football player.

Trevor not only excelled on the field, but off as well. He is on track to graduate with greater
than a 3.8 GPA. Trevor took time out of his busy schedule to read to elementary students
during fall football season, mentor younger students by conducting hitting lessons during the
summer, and is a greeter at his church.

Trevor Bastien2Trevor says he is excited to take this next step in his playing career. He’s looking forward to playing for head coach Steve Lewis and helping the program achieve it’s goal of another national championship. It’s always been a dream of Trevor’s to play baseball down south, facing some of the best competition in America while enjoying the warmer weather. He is undecided
on a major, but hopes to connect his love of sports with the business world.
