The Ingenues Committee meets weekly throughout the school year and mentors a select group of fourth grade young ladies. Topics of discussion include self-esteem, personal hygiene, safety, and many more. These special girls are also treated to parties celebrating holidays. Because of the frequency of meeting, this committee provides a special mission in the lives of these girls.

Lovin' Lunch Boxes
Lovin' Lunch Boxes provides weekend meals/snacks to children of the 6th-8th grade at Grenada Middle School who are chosen by counselors and teachers who see that these particular students could benefit and need food over the weekend. The Lovin' Lunch Boxes committee members meet once a month to pack lunch sacks for the children to take home every Friday afternoon. Food is either donated, bought from local grocery stores, or purchased off Amazon. At the end of the school year the committee gets a chance to meet the students that they have provided food for throughout the school year.

Operation Special Needs
OSN is designed to provide therapeutic and educational aids to special needs classrooms, teachers and students in our local schools. This project also hopes to branch out to parents and children in the community by providing them with activities and opportunities suited to their needs. OSN hosts a annual tennis tournament and 5K race in order to raise additional funds to provide more materials for special needs classes.
