#GivingTuesday 2019

Acworth, GA (November December 2, 2019) – December 3, 2019 is #GivingTuesday, a global day of giving that harnesses the collective power of a unique blend of partners – charities, families, businesses, and individuals—to encourage philanthropy and to celebrate generosity worldwide. #GivingTuesday is held annually on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, this year, December 3, 2019, to kick off the holiday giving season and to inspire people to give. Millions of people around the world have participated in the movement.

This year, Facebook will be matching up to $7 million of funds raised on Facebook for US nonprofits. Whether you have $10, $100, or $1000 to give, it all adds up for us! Especially when being matched! This is also a great way to maximize an end of year tax deduction. In our first #GivingTuesday we raised $1,870. During our second one, last year, we raised $2,765 and exceeded our $2,500 goal! … Our goal this year is $3,000.

In the spirit of giving, we will rekindle our #GivingTowelTuesday campaign to donate towels to Lake City & Acworth Animal Hospitals (one of our biggest supporters) to use for their Road Trip Home Animal Rescue support. On the last Tuesday of the month we will collect gently used towels and blankets to donate to help them help the rescue.

“After an overwhelming show of support from our community during our 2018/2019, raising $122,340.65, we feel compelled to continue our Giving Towel Tuesday program.” Said Kim Wigington, Principal, “One of our biggest sponsors & supporters, a local veterinary service, is constantly needing towels for one of the charities they support, Road Trip Home Animal Rescue. We knew our families would support this and they did not disappoint. We collected over 175 towels and blankets during our first year and almost double that last year!

Guest Columnist: Jan Murphy

Augusta, GA (February 16, 2019) – One of our parents, Jan Murphy, was featured as a guest columnist in the Augusta Chronicle with her column titled “This scholarship helped my family, and here’s how to improve it”.

In her column, she outlines her struggle with finding a school that would educate her daughters, and how that struggle led her to Brookwood Christian and Georgia’s Special Needs Scholarship (SB10).

“I remember those hard days: standing at the bus stop with my daughters, telling them that all we had to do was make it through one more year. If you don’t fit into the box, you fall through the cracks. And my daughters were quickly slipping through the cracks.

“We started exploring private school options, but tuition was beyond our means. That’s when we learned about the Special Needs Scholarship Program, which enables children with special needs who have attended public school for at least one year to transfer to another school (private, traditional public, or charter) that better fits their needs.

“Thankfully, my children qualified, enabling them to attend Brookwood Christian School in Acworth, a school with the type of student-to-teacher ratio that my girls need to truly excel. I’ll never forget the day one of my daughters came to me and said, “I don’t think I ever want to leave this school. Everyone here has a disability – and it’s no big deal.””

Jan then goes on give details of the history of the scholarship as well as her ideas for improvement. Thanks for telling your story, shining a light on the scholarship, and for speaking so well of us. 🙂

4th Annual History & Southern Charm Tour

Seven Beautiful Homes, Seven Astounding Stories

Acworth, GA (September 19, 2018) – Join us on this tour of Acworth’s most beautiful homes, all representative of our history! Starting at the McEver house, pick up your map and and tour these homes in whatever order you choose. Water will be provided and three homes will have wine & cheese.

The 4th Annual Tour is on October 21, 2018 from 2pm until 6pm. This is a self paced walking tour, though there are areas to park if you wish to drive, and shuttles between the longer distances. You will need to begin no later than 4pm to ensure enough time to complete the tour.

This tour started partly as a fundraiser and partly to help showcase the beautiful homes in Acworth. It quickly grew and by the 3rd year we exceeded our expectations and it took a life of its own. Now it’s a self paced tour, making it easier for visitors to complete at their convenience. This year we are coordinating with a local historic group to have docents with either a family tie to the home or know about the home from their childhood, which should make for a more quaint experience.

We owe so much to Abbie Parks, local historian, for her guidance and wealth of information getting this tour started, as well as so selflessly allowing the use of her home each year!

Homes on the 2018 tour:

  1. McEver House c. 1840 (Ticket pick up & purchase)
  2. James W. McMillan House c. 1879
  3. Guess House c. 1909
  4. Honeymoon House c. 1907
  5. Sprayberry House c. 1943
  6. Edward W. Lemon c. 1900 (Sponsored by Anchor Realty)
  7. Burtz House c. 1880

The tour ends near Center Street Tavern, another historic site, which has offered a $5 coupon off of $25 on each ticket.

Tickets are on sale now:

-$25 through Saturday, October 13, where they will also be on sale at our booth at Taste of Acworth
-$30 from Sunday, October 14 through Saturday October 20

Brookwood Christian celebrates 10th Birthday and Dyslexia Awareness Month

Celebrate with us October 10th, 2018 from 10:30am until 2pm

Acworth, GA (September 19, 2018) — Brookwood Christian School plans its 10th Birthday Extravaganza, Ten on 10/10 (#10on1010), three weeks from today. For 10 years, at this location, the school has served over 200 students with dyslexia or some other type of language processing disorder. On October 10, 2008, the school had the ribbon cutting for the opening of the original building, so it’s appropriate that the ribbon cutting for the new high school building will be on the day of the 10th Birthday celebration.

“It’s such an honor that we can celebrate the school’s 10th birthday during Dyslexia Awareness Month” said Danielle Anderson, Director of Student Affairs, “Not only are we celebrating 10 years of service to help students read, we are celebrating the successes and achievements of these students as well.”

The celebration, which is open to the Acworth Community, features the Ribbon Cutting Ceremony by Mayor Tommy Allegood and City of Acworth officials, a mini outside food court where guests can purchase Chick-fil-A, Pop Bubble Tea (both donating proceeds to the school’s Dyslexia Reading Programs) as well as Flavors of Hawaii Food Truck.  There will also be $1 per minute chair massages by Lori Tanner from Synergy Medical, with all proceeds benefiting the school’s Dyslexia Reading Programs. And of course, it’s not a birthday party without birthday cake, which will be provided by the school.

To thank those donating $30 or more, the school will be giving away 12”x18” collage prints of student art centered around the school and school day activities. Historic Acworth Door Prints will also be for sale.

There will be limited parking at the school with additional parking available at Acworth Baptist Church, a 2 minute walk (less than ½ mile).
