Adopt a School
Adopt–a-School is a partnership designed to improve public schools in Mobile by urging corporate bodies and churches to get involved in upgrading public schools through support in whatever area they choose. Dauphin Way adopted Old Shell Road Elementary over 25 years ago. One of our services is providing tutoring and school supplies.
Volunteers work with individual students in tutoring, read to a class, share about their profession to a class or attend functions in the absence of a parent. We also have a Backpack Ministry. This ministry provides food for select individuals for the weekend. The overall chairman is Lynn Green (478-4331), Backpack Chair is Kat Brand (334) 224-7363 and the staff contact person is Kathy Jorgensen.
