Solebury School returned to a long-standing tradition of an all-school Service Day on May 17.
Since the school’s founding in 1925, Solebury students and faculty have prioritized giving back to their environment and the community around them. This year, Solebury worked on 16 projects that benefited more than a dozen nonprofit organizations: Habitat for Humanity ReStore, Spin Inc., Rolling Harvest, Roots to River Farm, Carversville Farm Foundation, Bucks County Audubon Society, Bowman’s Hill Wildlife Preserve, Face to Face, Friends Village Retirement, New Hope Manor, New Hope Fire and Rescue, Lulu’s Dog Rescue, Operation Gratitude and Warm-up America.
Students, faculty and staff spent the day doing trail maintenance, prepping food, farming, knitting, gardening, painting, and mentoring. They worked with kids and adults with developmental disabilities, beautified Solebury’s campus, helped rescue dogs find homes, picked up litter, visited nursing homes, scrubbed fire station floors, and more.
