Help Others in Need

Beacon Charter is a big believer in supporting others in need, especially those in our community.

The National Honor Society is assisting the Marine Corps Reserve in their annual Toys for Tots campaign. Please help this worthy cause by dropping off a new, unwrapped toy, or if your time is short to shop, you may send in funds and they are happy to do the shopping for you.

We have a clothes line hanging in the main office. We are collecting hats, mittens, gloves, and scarves that will donated to a local organization, Connecting for Children and Families, that work with under privileged families.
