Poway, CA–The Poway Unified School District Foundation is launching a summer fundraiser, “Project Support & Supply,” designed to alleviate the hardships faced by students and families experiencing homelessness, food insecurity, and other challenges during the summer months.
As the school year comes to an end, the foundation recognizes that many students and families within the community continue to face challenges, without the meals, care, and other support they normally receive from schools.
“Our vision with ‘Project Support & Supply’ is to ensure that no student or family in the Poway Unified School District lacks access to critical resources during the summer break,” expressed Christine Paik, Foundation Board Member, and Poway Unified School District’s Chief Communications Officer. “Together, we can make a significant impact in the lives of those facing hardships right here in our own community.”
The fundraiser aims to collect monetary donations to fund emergency food and shelter, hygiene supplies and toiletries, gift cards for gas, groceries, haircuts, and access to laundry and shower facilities. The goal is to raise $25,000 from May 23 to July 31.
