Holiday and Household Support for Roxhill Families

We just learned that the organization that provided Roxhill families with holiday support in the past cannot provide the same level of support this year. Every child should have a holiday meal and present, and parents and caregivers could use less stress this holiday season. You can make a difference by donating today to Friends of Roxhill Elementary.
 
Bring holiday cheer and help families cover basic household needs (e.g., groceries, cleaning supplies, utilities). Our goal is to provide each family with $100 in holiday support and $100 in household support.
 
We have 75 families in our community who need support through the holiday season. How do we know families are struggling? Back in September, Roxhill Elementary School’s counselor, Amber, started reaching out to families to ask what they needed right now.
 
“Roxhill Elementary has the most amazing community of bright, loving kids and caring, generous families," said Ms. Amber, Roxhill Elementary School Counselor. "I know how hard it is to ask for help, so I honor every parent that has had the courage to let me know they need help right now. This is what community is about."
 
Roxhill Elementary is a small but mighty Title I school with approximately 240 students, located in the south end of West Seattle. 56% of our students are on free and reduced lunch. 30% of our student families are supported by the Seattle Housing Authority. Over 85% of our students are from BIPOC communities (Black, Indigenous, Person of Color). Our school has a strong sense of community. We come together to celebrate and support each other.
 
You can help us show every family that they are seen and cared for. Make your gift today, then share it on social media and send it to your family and friends. This is a moment when we need to come together.
 
In community,
Friends of Roxhill Elementary
