Community Service

Charleston Montessori is proud to be part of our greater community. Find out about our community service projects.

Each month the students and families of Charleston Montessori undertake at least one community service project. Coordinated by a parent volunteer, these projects include collecting donations for local shelters, as well as student field trips to volunteer at charitable organizations. 

The Mitten Tree

Charleston Montessori’s annual December giving project. We have the warmest tree in town because our families donate mittens, hats, and other cold weather items to hang on the tree. All donations go to the Covenant House in Charleston.

Habitat for Humanity Paint Drive

Another annual giving project is our Habitat for Humanity Paint Drive. Families donate leftover latex paint and our upper elementary students look forward to delivering it to the Habitat for Humanity ReStore. There they learn about the importance of keeping paint out of our landfills and community water supply, observe the process of mixing paint, and name the new paint colors.


Charleston Montessori is proud to participate in the Terracycle recycling program. Since May 2013, Charleston Montessori School has diverted over 2,000 pounds of hard-to-recycle materials from West Virginia landfills. Besides the positive impact this has on our environment, Charleston Montessori School earns cash donations from Terracyle through their Points Program. You can find a full list of accepted materials in the Charleston Montessori School office. Please contact us if you or your business would like to donate recyclables to Charleston Montessori School.

 Other community service projects include:

  • Monthly donations of items such as cereal and laundry detergent to the YWCA Sojourner’s Shelter.
  • Cooking meals for families staying at the Ronald McDonald House.
  • Writing “thinking of you” cards to seniors for Faith in Action of the Greater Kanawha Valley.
  • Visiting with seniors at Edgewood Summit.
