From Sharon McGinnis Girdlestone:
There are 650 homeless students in the Mount Diablo School District, just a few miles from us. I find this heart-wrenching and want to help. I am working with local non-profits, White Pony Express, All Good Livings, and the Sydney Paige Foundation, as well as the Mount Diablo School District, to ensure these kids get all of the hygiene items they need.
Many of us have put effort into helping and have donated items, including a parent who donated 1,500 body washes and lotions, THANK YOU! I’m now running this drive to fill in the rest of the items needed.
At a time & place TBD, we will also hold a ‘pack-out party’ to put all items into backpacks. Bring your kids to help assemble kits, create notes of encouragement, and have a blast giving back together as a community! Details to come.
Please sponsor as many items as you can so that we can not only provide full kits to all 650 homeless students, but also help them feel loved, cared for, and BELIEVED in! They are up against all odds right now. I hope you’ll join me in being a beacon of light in their lives.
Thank you so much for your support!
