Silverwood Elementary School
In early 2016, the students at Silverwood Elementary School in Concord, CA joined the ranks of RFFI’s Young Philanthropists. The student council of this K-5 school, under the guidance of teachers, Shelley Harrison (pictures above, left) and Delrae Tillery (pictured above, right) , launched an initiative that the students named “Change for Change.” The catchy slogan captured both the intent and method of the campaign.
The young leaders spearheaded a campaign that collected change from students and faculty to be donated to RFFI, an organization that they felt was working to bring about positive change to the environment. Read more about Change for Change at Silverwood Elementary School.
