Shop With a Viking
“Shop with a Viking” (SWAV) is a community service opportunity which allows Lowndes High School students to experience the true meaning of the season of giving. LHS student teams are paired with underprivileged elementary age students for a day of shopping and fun. Last year, ninety shopping teams (450+ students) were matched with ninety children. Through the charity of our business partners, faculty, parents, and community, $11,000.00 in donations were raised to support SWAV. On December’s first Saturday, teams and their “shopping buddies” meet at LHS where face painting and ornament-making set the stage for a wonderful day. An exciting afternoon passes quickly with wrapping gifts, playing games, decorating cookies, and taking photos with Santa. Our day concludes with happy memories made.
