Students Donate over $44,000 to Adullam House

Middle and Upper School students at The Montgomery Academy held an assembly to present Adullam House with a donation of $44,015 as the result of a yearlong fundraising effort. The Montgomery Academy Public Service Committee adopts an agency every year. This year the students chose Wetumpka, Alabama’s Adullam House, which cares for some of the River Region’s most vulnerable children. Either one or both parents have been incarcerated or are incapable of taking care of their children. Once placed, they are unconditionally loved, and in turn, give the same love back to others.

H.E.A.R.T. (Helping Eagles Are Right There), The Montgomery Academy’s Upper School community service organization, conducted fundraisers throughout the school year. These fundraisers include dress down days, parking space raffles, bake sales, hearts for H.E.A.R.T, and the highly popular annual Dodgeball game. Two students are chosen from each Upper School grade level to raise funds to be crowned “Dodgeball King.” This fundraiser alone raised over $38,000.

The Middle School student leadership raised over $1,100 conducting bake sales and dress down days. Lower and Middle School students also collected and donated essential items such as cleaning supplies, snacks, drinks and books for children at Adullam House.

Community service is an essential part of Montgomery Academy's mission to develop leaders committed to honor, scholarship, service and the pursuit of excellence.
