Senior High School Donations

I recently learned that a local Senior High School, a school in my community, has over 100 homeless students. Many of the families are living in cars, a few lucky ones are in temporary hotel situations. A wonderful woman that works at the school has taken it upon HERSELF to provide for these kids – feeding them, clothing them, doing their laundry, letting the students shower at her house before school. She relies on donations and support, and myself, my mom, my coworkers, and the Rotary Club of Perrine-Cutler Ridge/Palmetto Bay have all pitched in. But we need your help! Fortunately, they have a huge storage space for donations. Every little thing counts.

I’m asking you to please donate on our GoFundMe page. Your money will go towards providing food and toiletries to these kids and their families. By providing money, we are able to buy in bulk with coupons!!! More bang for your buck! (EDIT 11/20/19: Please note that all funds are being deposited into the Rotary Club's Foundation. I wanted to clarify where the money is going to make potential donors more comfortable!)

Alternately, if you don’t feel comfortable sending money, please consider buying something from this Amazon wishlist: Amazon Wish List . It will ship to my office, and I will deliver to the school. And if you have nothing to give right now, I completely understand. Perhaps forward this to someone you know who would be able to give. Can your company sponsor a hot meal for the families? We are open to any ideas! 

We visit the school every two weeks, and I am shocked at how much need there is. We show up and stock the shelves with an amazing amount of donated food and toiletries, and in two weeks it is completely depleted.  Anything you can give is appreciated and keeps these kids fed. It is especially important now as we head into the holidays – when they don’t go to school, they don’t get free meals. Imagine waking up EVERY MORNING not knowing how many meals you will get that day, or the next 5 days (their Thanksgiving break), or the next 16 days (the length of their upcoming winter break). I can’t imagine it. 

Thank you!!
