We currently have 28 students on our ‘high need” list of Willow Glen Cares students. They range through students who are homeless but maybe staying with a friend, living in a hotel, shelter or transitional housing or living with their family renting a a room or apartment at such a high price that they cannot afford much beyond the rent. There are severe food shortages in many of these homes and trouble paying utility bills and transportation to school. (A VTA bus pass costs $45 per month per child which is why some of our students walk two miles to school every morning)
The students on this list have been invited to “reserve” a Thanksgiving gift basket for pick up next week. Thanks to the efforts of the National Honors Society under Mr. Mok, we will have 15 gift baskets arriving at school on Monday. “Young Life” are providing us another 5 so we hope we will be able to provide a gift basket to all the families who need and request one. We are also going to give each of these students a pair of cosy socks (that was a request made by one of the kids).
Winter Holidays – “Adopt a Student / Family” Program 2015
Each year for 3 years we have had an “Adopt a Student or Family” program. I invite you all to participate in this initiative. If your family, your office, your club, your classes or your organization would like to “adopt” one of our own students or families, which means providing them with some gifts and supplies for the winter holidays, please let me know. I will send out the details of how this works next week. We also welcome all donations to add to the gifts or in the event of a new student or family in need coming to our attention at the last minute. Donations can include new blankets, pillows, hygiene supplies, cookies and seasonal gifts, socks, sweatshirts etc. and gift cards.
Thank you and look forward to hearing from some of you!:
