Founded in 1921, Pilot International is a worldwide service organization, taking an active part in making our communities a better place to live. Over the past ninety-five years, local, national and international communities have benefited from Pilot International's involvement. Pilot International Foundation has awarded over one million dollars in grants assisting Pilot club communities and scholarships for individuals pursuing careers in research, medicine and therapy for brain disorders and disabilities. Through these programs, our members reach tens of thousands of people each year.

The Anchors meet on the 2nd and 4th Monday at 4PM.  The 2nd Monday they meet at Crossroads Church who have been kind enough to provide us a meeting facility.  On the 4th Monday, they meet on campus at DCHS.  Coach Biddle is their DCHS Liaison.

Douglasville First United Methodist Church, ( DFUMC ) is the collection point for OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD (OCC ) (Samaritan's Purse) in Douglas County again this year! Please contact your local churches to get involved. You can collection items as well as sign up to serve in helping unload cars and trucks, check boxes, count and pack in large boxes to haul. Churches and groups of all sizes collect boxes from their communities. Some churches also serve as drop-off locations for shoeboxes the third week of November every year.

From children to seniors, people pack shoebox gifts each year to bless children in need around the world. Parents often use the project to teach their kids about giving. Year-round volunteers support these efforts across the country.

Thousands of volunteers serve annually inspecting and preparing shoeboxes for international shipping. Every hour work stops for a few minutes to pray for the children who will receive the boxes.

What is the UNICEF High School Club Program?

The UNICEF High School Club program is a youth-led initiative that partners with the

U.S. Fund for UNICEF to educate, advocate and fundraise to support UNICEF’s lifesaving work.

It is a growing movement rooted in a belief that students have a vital role to play in helping

the world’s children survive.  Your initiative supports UNICEF’s work in more than 190 countries

and territories, because students have a unique opportunity to involve members of their

Community in global humanitarian issues.

UNICEF High School Students engage in a variety of activities. They set up booths at their

schools and at festivals to promote children’s issues and fundraise, write letters to elected

officials and participate in Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF and the UNICEF Tap Project campaigns.

They also produce benefit concerts, host speakers, and write school newspaper articles about

UNICEF’s work.
