Put Homelessness to Rest 5K Run/Walk and Kids Fun Run

Donation Goal: $5,000

The Whitewater Community Fundraising Partners is a group of WHS Graduates and community members who help raise funds to make a difference in the lives of students and community members.

This year, we are raising funds to help support our homeless youth and families.  As quoted in the Daily Union on September 9, 2019:  Lenora Heim, Director of Student Services,  said that during the 2018-19 school year, the district recorded 72 students who experienced homelessness during at least a portion of the school year.

Many of those students still were in a “homeless situation” through the end of the school year, she said, while others had since secured housing.

Wrapped into that number, 14 of those 72 students were considered unaccompanied minors, defined as minors not living with a parent or guardian, but on their own.

Please donate today and help us, help area students and families.
