We have a high rate of homeless students and families in our community. Students and families struggle to meet their basic needs such as personal hygiene products, food, school supplies, shelter and transportation. We are constantly assisting our students and the community to meet these basic needs. Our school is about 80% on free and reduced lunch. This project will help our students focus on their education and not worry about their basic hygiene needs while they are in school.
Southern California is usually warm. As a result families are not prepared for winter and the weather. Many of our students do not have proper attire or protection from the elements. This project will help students ensure that they are kept warm and dry. The ponchos will be kept in the front office and will be available to those students that do not have umbrellas. We will be buying 400 ponchos and keeping them for the rainy season. Students will be able to access ponchos if there is need or if they forget an umbrella that day, they will be stay warm and protected.
