Algoma Venture Academy giving back

You may be able to thank the Algoma Venture Academy for having warm feet this fall and winter. Students from the public charter school distributed 750 pairs of socks to several different organizations, including the Kewaunee County Food Pantry, Violence Intervention Project, Kewaunee County Sheriff's Department, ESI - Empowering & Supporting Individuals, City of Algoma Police Department, Algoma School District, Algoma Area Chamber of Commerce, and US Venture Open. AVA Board member Adam Peronto says it was on the kids to decide how to distribute the socks so they had the broadest reach and the most significant impact.

The Algoma Venture Academy partners with the Algoma School District to focus on experience-based learning so they can develop the skills needed to go out into the workplace and serve their community. This Friday from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. at Perry Park in Algoma, Algoma Venture Academy students are hosting an outdoor movie night for area teenagers featuring a pair of scary movies to celebrate the Halloween season. All funds raised go back to the Algoma Venture Academy.
