Center for Peace, Equity, & Justice through Service
is a student committee formed in the spring of 2007 by Emily Faxon, '09. It is a committee dedicated to providing grants to members of the Lincoln School Community who wish to better the lives of women and children in southern New England through service.
The hope of Tuesday’s Branches
is that as students and teachers apply for grants, they will grow to understand that the core of helping people is service. They will understand that money is important to any organization working for change, but that dedicated and willing hands are what make a lasting impression on those in need.
Most recently: In the spring of 2009, Tuesday's Branches
gave money to faculty member Holly Kindl for a project she created with Upper School students visiting Laurel Hill School in Providence. The students ran in-class lessons for the 3rd, 4th and 5th grade children and helped with craft projects. The money for the craft supplies was given by Tuesday's Branches.
