Pasadena Waldorf School, founded in 1979, offers an inspired education to students from Early Childhood through High School.

Pasadena, CA (PRWEB) January 01, 2014

As an annual holiday service tradition, the Seventh and Eighth Grades of Pasadena Waldorf School once again partnered with the organizations Door of Hope, a Pasadena-based non-profit that provides transitional housing for homeless families and children, and St. James Community Food Locker, whose annual Christmas market gives families in need an opportunity to provide gifts for their loved ones during the holiday season.

This year, the students added Five Acres, the 125 year old children’s charity and advocacy organization, which provided a wish list directly from children in need. Over $2200 worth of toys were donated to Five Acres, Door of Hope and the St. James Food Locker. Before Thanksgiving, over $1700 was raised for Union Station to provide much-needed funding for their Thanksgiving feast for local homeless people in the Pasadena area.

Pasadena Waldorf School, founded in 1979, offers an inspired education to students from Early Childhood (Parent-Child, Preschool, and Kindergarten) through Grade Eleven (and grade twelve in 2015-2016). With ninety years of experience and over 1000 schools worldwide, Waldorf education is one of the world’s fastest growing independent school movements.
