Christmas Injury Lawyers At The 9th Annual Harvest Dinner

The Christmas Injury Lawyers community participated in a very special opportunity to participate in the 9th Annual Green Heart Harvest Dinner at Mitchell Elementary School earlier this May. This year’s event boasted a large crowd of over 900 attendees and raised over $40,000 for the Farms to Schools program. It was a resounding moment for students and families alike to come together and support the Charleston community and beyond.

The Purpose and Founding of the Green Heart Project

The annual Green Harvest Dinner is a neighborhood pot-luck style BBQ that promotes healthy food and community bonds. All proceeds from this event went to supporting the Green Heart organization that educates school-aged children on the benefits of growing fresh produce and the dedication and hard work that comes with it.

The Green Heart Project was founded in 2009 at Mitchell Elementary School so that its students could have the opportunity for an education on the outdoors, growing produce, and dedication to their community. Many of those students come from low-income households with seldom access to fresh produce. This organization not only gives these students access to healthy foods, but also teaches them the skills required to go forth and start a garden of their own. The organization now has 6 elementary school locations and has expanded their philanthropy to include a summer program for interested students who want to continue learning throughout the peak gardening season.

The Impact of the Green Heart Project

This program has been shown to have positive impacts on student enthusiasm for learning, science and understanding skills, standardized test scores, GPAs, higher-order thinking skills, and confidence in ability. In addition to increased individual success, students are taught the important skills of being an active community member such as civic responsibility, active participation, cultural heritage, and a sense of ethics.

Christmas Injury Lawyers’ Involvement

Our community at Christmas Injury Lawyers believes in raising a strong South Carolina community that shares our values of hard work and ethics. We’re so lucky that we were afforded the opportunity to give back to our community with an organization that provides students with unique lessons on health and the greater Charleston area. A big thank you to Green Heart Project for all of the amazing work they have done and the many successes to come!
