“It Takes a Village” ministry provides school donations when needed for Safety Patrol Trips for Jupiter Elementary, Riviera Beach Elementary and Palmetto Elementary Schools in Palm Beach County. Oceanview donates uniform shirts, uniform shorts, school supplies and donations (when needed) to help fund a child going on the Spring Safety Patrol Trip to Washington D.C.
The AAA School Safety Patrol program is the largest traffic safety program in the world. Since its inception in 1920, the program has provided a safer environment and educational opportunities for millions of school children. Each year, more than 654,000 children participate at over 34,500 schools throughout the country.
The program instills students with a sense of responsibility, leadership and citizenship. AAA provides an array of equipment and material, including electric-lime fluorescent belts, nickel plated steel badges and training. When properly uniformed and trained, they ensure their classmates safety to and from school every day. The program helps reduce injuries and deaths among 5-to-14 year olds, the age group most at risk for pedestrian injury.
During Vacation Bible School, we collect donations of school supplies for our local schools. In addition, we purchase and distribute uniform shirts and shorts to each or our ‘adopted’ schools prior to the beginning of each new school year.
You can help by donating school supplies, back packs, and uniform shirts/shorts. Bring them to Oceanview Church or donate directly to the “It Takes A Village Ministry”.
