As part of the Clinton School’s commitment to public service, the school is collecting gift cards and checks for The Little Rock Stewpot for Giving at Graduation, an annual tradition as part of the school commencement ceremony.
The school’s outdoor commencement ceremony is set for Sunday, May 2.
The Stewpot, located on the second floor of the First Presbyterian Church in Little Rock, has delivered on its mission to feed whoever walks through its doors since its founding in 1972. In addition to providing meals, the organization also helps deliver clothing and medical services to those in need.
The Stewpot provides hot meals to the homeless, jobless, elderly, physically or mentally disabled and displaced families in the greater Little Rock area, serving more than 1.5 million meals in the span of its nearly 50-year history.
Tax deductible checks can be made payable to The Little Rock Stewpot and mailed to:

The Clinton School Speaker Series not only enhances the education of Clinton School students, but also provides a venue for the public to engage in intellectual discussions on the issues of the day.
