Teaching children the importance of giving back and helping others from a young age can be very powerful in shaping their character values as they grow, especially when they have opportunities to participate in philanthropic activities hands on. That�s why philanthropy is a core element of our curriculum at The Malvern School throughout the year and during the holiday season. From Thanksgiving through the winter holidays, each of our schools organize their own charitable efforts, enabling our young friends, families and staff to make an impact on their local communities. Year after year, we�re humbled by everyone�s generosity and are amazed at what a difference we can make together. Among the highlights so far this year: The Malvern School of Richboro donating 204 pounds of food to the Emergency Relief Association, a nonprofit dedicated to serving those in need throughout Lower Bucks County. The Malvern School of Marlton hosting a Pajama Day and raising $815 for Children�s Hospital of Philadelphia.
