What We Do

Since 2000, every October, the students, faculty, staff, administration, and parents of Texoma Christian School (TCS) have participated in Care-A-Thon, a cooperative program that involves the city of Sherman and the surrounding communities.

 

Care-A-Thon Objectives

  • To make a difference in the community by serving and reaching out to others.

  • To establish partnerships with nonprofit organizations.

  • To teach the students the values of sharing, serving the community, and volunteering.

  • To reinforce character building and citizenship.

 

“The King will reply, ‘I tell you the truth, whatever you did or one of these brothers of mine, you did for Me.’”

— Matthew 25:37-40

 

Project Summary

  • At the beginning of each year, TCS teachers, parents, and students begin to identify their service project.

  • After gaining the support and financial help of businesses, families, and friends, groups of students and teachers start to spread across Grayson County and spend hundreds of hours working to demonstrate the love of Christ and to meet specific needs for individuals and organizations.

  • Some of the past service projects involved preparing Thanksgiving baskets for those in need, delivering gift packets to hospital patients, doing yard work and cleanup for local centers, providing food and personal items for local food banks’/shelters and delivering meals for Meals on Wheels.
