The Transition Academy students from Pope High School participate in community service.
On November 1, 2019, the Transition Academy students from Pope High School participated in a community service project with Project Mail Call. Project Mail Call brings together volunteers to put together letters and packages that they send to U.S. Armed Service members who are serving overseas. Project Mail Call has been in operation for over 16 year and has mailed more than 10,000 care packages.
The Pope Transition Academy learned about community service by writing letters and helping put together care packages. The Transition Academy packed 12 care-boxes weighing a total of 157 pounds. Those care boxes were sent to 98 Marines, sailors and soldiers in Afghanistan, Bahrain and Kuwait. This is the fifth year that the Transition Academy has participated in this service project.
