THOMASVILLE - Each year, a group of Brookwood School students hosts Empty Bowls, Full Hearts: a simple soup benefit dinner. This year, students involved in the Student Government Association served bread and soup while asking for donations to benefit upcoming service projects at the Scott Senior Center and the Francis Weston YMCA. Students hope to build a butterfly garden at the senior center and provide artistic updates to the Weston Y, among other improvements at each site. The event held late last month has raised nearly $2,000 to support these projects, with donations still being made.
Located in Thomasville, GA, Brookwood School is a private school for grades JK-12. Students benefit from a challenging academic program, fine and performing arts, competitive athletics, and a wide selection of extracurricular activities.
