Community Service at Landmark High School
Landmark has a strong commitment to supporting the community, both locally and internationally. Community service projects help our students develop a stronger sense of self and a greater ability to connect with the world around them. Our students complete more than 6,000 volunteer hours each year. Some of the organizations we support include the Special Olympics, American Red Cross, homeless shelters, soup kitchens and food pantries, thrift shops, after school child care centers, and many more.
Landmark High School's chaplain, Bill Ferguson, works with students to encourage personal growth and an awareness of the world by organizing community service opportunities at home and abroad. He supports students in the pursuit of their own religion and faith and provides awareness of the traditions and beliefs of other faiths.
Parents or students interested in the Community Service program should contact Rev. Bill Ferguson.

Read what some of our charity organizers say about us:
“In the 15 years that I have participated in the Special Olympics, I have never seen kids as attentive and enthusiastic as the Landmark students. In previous years we have had volunteers who disappear after opening ceremonies but the two Landmark students stuck with the BC Double Dragons team all afternoon, were proactive, and really positive. They even took the time to learn all the players’ names. It's people like these two Landmark students that make events like the Special Olympics such a success.”
“Thank you! Your crew did a FANTASTIC job at Ravenswood this Saturday. We have heard rave reviews about your work. Thank you!”
“I am truly appreciative of the community service your students performed yesterday. My yard was a complete disaster before your crew arrived, with fallen leaves and branches everywhere. They soon had everything under control and finished with 30 bags of yard waste at the curb and a trash barrel full of branches waiting for city pickup. Thank you so very much for all you and your delightful students do to make it easier for me to stay in my home. I could not do it without your help.”
“Landmark School has been a supporter of Beverly Bootstraps for many years. We truly appreciate the generosity of the administrators, parents, teachers, and students. Community support is what keeps us strong and here for those who turn to use us in their time of need.”
"It was amazing to see how (our) patients perked up when your students interacted with them. The correct adjective here is priceless. We hope your students will long remember the life lessons they learned at the hospital today. They should be very proud of what they've done."
