This is a fundraising event to help homeless youth in the Whitewater School District.  We are working directly with the Whitewater School District.  In April 2019, both the Janesville Gazette and the Daily Jefferson Union stating that 'Whitewater School District has over 60 homeless students.'  This is a staggering 3% of the total student population.  Since COVID hit, the numbers have gone up even higher and our families are in need of help.
