Donations Make the Season Bright for Homeless Students

homeless Thanks to the generosity of community members, businesses, schools and district employees, our students who are experiencing homelessness had a brighter holiday season. The Children and Youth in Transition Department received donations of food, clothing, shoes, and recreational items, including:
  •  600 food bags
  •  Holiday Adoption of 26 families (includes 80 children)
  •  More than 1,000 toys and recreational items     
  •  Hundreds of blankets, hats, gloves, coats, sweaters, scarves, sweatshirts, sweatpants, socks, shoes and hygiene kits
These items not only provided homeless children with the essential items they need but also with the joy that other children experience when they receive a new piece of clothing or an unused toy. We are extremely grateful to these individuals and groups for their support and donations:
