Kent Garden’s PTA Community Service Committee

Mission Statement

The Kent Garden’s Community Service Committee has been established to enhance community outreach, and offer our students the opportunity to engage in projects designed to serve our community at large.

Ongoing Events

Treats for Troops Campaign, Fall

Thanks to a very generous Kent Gardens Community, we send hundreds of pounds of candy, magazines, pictures, cards and toiletries to our troops each year. We have partnered with the Maryland Army National Guard to ship the boxes to our troops around the world.

To all of the wonderful people that put together the care packages, I thank you on behalf of Combined Task Force Chesapeake. The Soldiers loved everything you sent. It was truly a big hit! It is very comforting to know we have people that care about us and what we do. Thank you very much for your generous support.

Maryland’s Finest!

Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Pennies for Patients Campaign, Spring

Kent Gardens participates in The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Pennies for Patients Campaign each spring. Each year, 12 million students come together for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s School & Youth Programs to further an important cause: finding a cure for blood cancers. Through meaningful service and cooperative team work, kids across the country have raised more than $125 million over the past 15 years, proving they can make difference in the lives of others.

Reading Partners, throughout the school year

The school is collecting gently used books to distribute to DC schools through Reading Partners. Books can be dropped off in the main office for collection.
