HUNTERSVILLE, N.C.––They’re giving back to their community and making a difference.

They’re the students of SouthLake Christian Academy. And according to school spokesman Chris Hunt, SLCA held its annual days of service, Nov. 16-18, and the students involved performed a commendable service to many folks.

“The freshmen and sophomore classes spent three days, giving back to the local and regional community,” Hunt said Monday.

During this three-day period, as he continued, SouthLake Christian Academy freshmen washed dishes and prepared meals at the Mooresville Soup Kitchen; built a silt fence for the Mooresville branch of Habitat for Humanity; and organized donations for East Lincoln Christian Ministry. Meanwhile, the sophomores traveled to Honea Path, S.C., in order to help the Widows’ Watchman Ministries. There, the students spent three days assisting in the repair and maintenance of the local homes of widows.

And Hunt noted that the school’s eighth graders were not to be outdone. They spent Nov. 24 volunteering at Shining Hope Farms, located in the countryside off NC-16, between Mount Holly and Lowesville. At Shining Hope, students chopped and stacked wood, cleared riding trails and performed maintenance jobs for the farm.

Hunt added that Paul and Milinda Kirkpatrick founded the farm. Its mission is to provide equine therapeutic services in a working farm environment. Shining Hope offers therapy for individuals and groups with a variety of disabilities, such as cerebral palsy, autism, Down’s syndrome, developmental disabilities and brain injuries, to name a few. Many patients ride horses on the farm’s grounds as part of their therapy.
