Our friends in education from the elementary to college levels have supported the Coalition with their creative projects and donation drives for years. Student organizations, classes, sports teams, even entire schools have weaved the crisis of homelessness into their curriculum and found great ways to benefit the Coalition:
- Donation Drives: A local middle school donated their Spirit Week to the Coalition, pairing a theme with one of our needs. On Crazy Sock Day, students brought a package of socks to donate; on Pajama Day, students brought a new set of sheets. Check out our Immediate Needs List to find ideas for a drive your school could do!
- Fundraising Events: An elementary school recently did a Change War between all grade levels, donating the proceeds to the Coalition and enjoying a great competition! Let us know how we can help during your next fundraiser!
- Volunteer Projects: Even the little hands of first grade students can participate in projects at the Coalition! We need help collecting items and making hygiene bags, providing bagged lunches for residents, and so much more. Contact us to arrange a great trip and tour for your students.
Your school group can make a huge difference in the lives of our residents with some simple, fun projects. If you need ideas, check out these two great resources for schools:
If you are interested in involving your school, contact Coalition staff to arrange an opportunity, conduct a tour, speak to your group, or answer any questions you may have.
