Every October since 2000, the students, faculty, staff, administration, and parents of Texoma Christian School (TCS) have participated in the school's annual Care-A-Thon, a cooperative program that involves the city of Sherman and the surrounding communities.
At the beginning of each year, TCS teachers, parents and students begin to identify their service project. After gaining the support and financial help of businesses, families and friends, groups of students and teachers start to spread across Grayson County and spend hundreds of hours working to demonstrate the love of Christ and to meet specific needs of individuals and organizations.
Some of the past service projects involved preparing Thanksgiving baskets for those in need, delivering gift packets to hospital patients, doing yard work and cleanup for local centers, providing food and personal items for local food banks/shelters and delivering meals for Meals on Wheels.
“Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’ “The King will reply, ‘I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.' - Matthew 25:37-40
