Each month St. Nicholas Academy will take on a community outreach project. We hope to have a positive impact on the community we live in, as well as help those who need it most. This way we can teach our children how you can turn Faith in to Action!
During the month of love we are going to show some love to the children in Bethlehem who are at risk for hunger during weekends, school holidays and summer break. Backpack Pals of Bethlehem is an organization that collects and distributes non perishable, easy to prepare food items to the kids who need them.
This month is all about our furry friends. Unfortunately, the winter is a busy time for shelters and they need all the help they can get! Please consider donating to this "pawesome" cause!
This month we will be helping our friends at the Children's Hospital at Lehigh Valley Hospital. There are so many children who spend their holiday stuck in the hospital that it helps to brighten their spirits to know their community members care!

Honoring our Veterans
This month we are focusing on our Veterans! Students will be making thank you cards for Veterans in our community and their families! We will be raising money for Alpha Bravo Canine, a non profit that provides service dogs to Veterans at NO cost. In addition to donations collected from staff and students we will be splitting the profits from our Christmas Greens sale with Alpha Bravo!

Introducing our first Faith In Action Campaign of the year! Traditionally, April is Autism Awareness month, but we did not want to wait that long to bring this very important topic to the forefront. We hope to accomplish several goals this month:
February is all about love and this month we will be showing the kids of Bethlehem just how much love there is in our community. We will be supporting Backpack Pals, a great community organization that helps to ensure no child goes hungry. Please see the flyer for more information on how to contribute.
This month we will be helping the Sunday School of St. Nicholas support the St. Barnabas Orphanage and School in Kenya. To learn more about this mission please visit their website at http://orthodoxmissionkenya.org.
'Tis the season ... of giving! We will be collecting gifts for the children at Lehigh Valley Children's Hospital to help brighten their spirits as they fight their battles in the hospital.
November is home to Veterans Day. This month we will focus on how to honor those who have served and sacrificed so much for us! Please join us for our Family Fun Night on November 10th where we will host a pumpkin baking and tasting contest and raise money to send to activeheros.org.
