Beacon School students showed their support for the homeless by planning and running an in-school bake sale.

Students of the independent day school, located on the Greenwich-Stamford border, organize community service projects throughout the year. Proceeds from the bake sale benefited Pacific House, a homeless shelter in Stamford.

Community service is valued and appreciated at Beacon. Students are encouraged to propose their own community service initiatives.

Jack von Riesemann, a student, said in a press release, “When I saw homeless people I wanted to help them. I wanted to give back.”

“We deeply value the compassionate community we have at Beacon. We value every effort our students make to take that compassion beyond the classroom,” said Meredith Hafer, Beacon’s head of school.
