Our Jeans Can Help Change the World
Once a month students have the opportunity on a themed jeans day to donate $1 in order to wear their jeans to school instead of their school uniform. Do you know where all the money is being donated? It is going to Chimbote, Peru! BCS Student Council determines fun themes for each monthly Jean Day, and all the monies raised go to missionaries at the Social Works Center in Chimbote Peru. The Social Works Center is a multi-serviced health and education facility that consists of a maternity hospital, an outpatient clinic, a clinical laboratory, and education and specialty service care programs. On average, the doctors and staff treat 17,000 patients, and deliver 300 babies every month. Because of the exceptional work organizing this monthly fundraiser by the BCS Student Council, the school was asked to present their work at the Peru Mission Dinner at the Sheraton in Station Square on Friday, October 28, 2016. Students presented a tri-fold border entitled, “Our Jeans Can Help Change the World.” We are so thankful to the Student Council in leading this good work to help missionaries in Chimbote. We are also so thankful to all our students who choose to participate on a themed jeans day and support this good work. What a fun way to change the world for the better!
