Adopt A School
What is it?
- A volunteer opportunity for adults to connect with students at Boyd and Roundtree Elementary during lunch or breakfast
When do you need me?
- We have times open every school day! Once you are approved through the Allen ISD Volunteer Spot! We hope you can visit the school once a week or at least 2 times each month!
How can I sign up?
- http://www.allenisd.org "Register to be a volunteer"
- Or Here on the events page
Who is involved?
- Allen area churches who have indicated an interest in helping those in need. Our parter churches right now include:
- Boyd Elementary: First Baptist, First Methodist
- Rountree Elementary: First Presbyterian, Greenville Oaks Church of Christ
- Reed Elementary: The Harvest and Allen Bible Church
Why do you need me?
We asked the Allen ISD administration and the staff at these schools what could make the biggest impact on their students and they suggested this idea! Building new relationships with others in their community can have a profound impact on the lives of these children and their families!
- Over 40 churches, nonprofit organizations, and local businesses from Allen, Lucas, and Fairview participated in 2015. Choose from a variety of community-wide projects. Change The World Weekend offers children, teens, and adults the opportunity to pay it forward right here in our home comment with a variety of project that serve others who are hungry, in need of clothing, seeking safe shelter, and loving for comfort.
- In 2015, we worked on 75+ projects, ranging from Home Improvement, Yard Work, Area Beautification, Food & Care Packaging, Clothing, Book & Food Drives, and Sort & stack at local Non-Profits.

Back to school events
- 6This year 3CAllen again partnered with Allen Community Outreach to help 350 clients get kids ready for school. Over 100 volunteers served on Saturday August 24 by giving out backpacks with school supplies, new shoes, haircuts, eye exams, and prayer. Thanks to everyone for another great Back to School for our Allen Kids!
This Program builds on the success of the partnership between Rockbridge Church and the local Kohl's Department Store. This year, the event is scheduled for October. Churches, ministries and individuals are needed to sponsor a KIDs shopping trip for $100. We expect to serve over 150 children. Applications will be taken for qualifying families and children. Volunteers are needed on the day of the event to assist with shopping, registration, hospitality and prayer. To volunteer contact Pastor Timothy Jones at Rockbridge Church or Wendy Stewart at firstname.lastname@example.org.
