RHS Cares

Greetings! My name is Jennifer Wilson and I work at Redwood Heights Elementary School (RHS) in Oakland as a school counselor and family support coordinator. During this time of shelter-in-place due to COVID, some Redwood Heights families have been severely impacted and unable to pay rent or buy food. Some are unable to leave their homes to access food banks or other resources due to medical reasons, lack of safe transportation, or other obstacles.

We have been able to provide some cash assistance through our PTA; however, we have realized that the needs are greater than what the PTA is able to provide on its own.

We have been working with RHS parents who need immediate cash assistance to support their families and avoid falling through the cracks.

This cash support will be a lifeline for these parents, allowing them to feed their children, stay in their homes, pay for medical costs, and maintain their utilities. They are so grateful and frequently in tears upon receiving help from the community.

We can all really make a difference here! 

All funds raised from this campaign will go directly to RHS families in need of extra financial support during this time. 

Thank you for supporting these families and showing up in community!
