REACH Too & RE students help community

Twenty RE alumni volunteered on Sept. 10 at the Macedonia Missionary Baptist Church in Coconut Grove, where they sorted, bagged and distributed food and other items to more than 300 Grove families. Headed by Carolina Hommen ’24, students, alumni and their families joined together with Joshua’s Heart Foundation for a second year of giving back to the community. The successful nonprofit was started by Joshua Williams ’18 and is on a mission to stomp out world hunger and break the cycle of poverty.

The school provides rigorous college preparation that promotes the student's sense of identity, community, personal integrity and values for a productive and satisfying life, and prepares the student to lead and to contribute to society.
