JACKSON, Tenn. - Jackson Christian School unveiled a new year-round fundraiser that will benefit a different non-profit group in Jackson every month.

School officials said they hope this new program, called "The Power of One" will help inspire their 883 students to see that they can make a difference in their communities. Those involved in the Student Government Association are helping to spearhead the effort.

"Just one individual person or just one individual group or one organization that you can use the power within you, the power that Christ gave you to just really do something good for somebody else,"
said Sydney Swims, a senior and SGA member.

Donation buckets will be placed in the English classrooms for middle and high schoolers and envelopes will be sent home with preschool and elementary students.

This month's donations will benefit Rainbow Riding Academy, which is the hippotherapy program through West Tennessee Healthcare.
