How You Can Help West Valley McKinney-Vento Students
Like most districts in our state, West Valley continues to experience increases in the numbers of students and families in our district who are experiencing homelessness.
Families who are experiencing homelessness often have a lack of access to clothing, school supplies, food, and basic toiletries. We would like to begin to build a small clothing and supplies resource bank here at the district that could be used to meet the immediate needs of students and families as they come in to our district.
West Valley will be collecting donations. Starting November 6th, 2018, we will be placing collection tubs in the main office of each school building. Once the items are collected they will be stored at the district. Needed items can then be requested by contacting Kerri Klippert firstname.lastname@example.org or Lexi Tyler email@example.com.
Below is a list of items that we could use to support families in our district.
- * NON-PERISHABLE FOOD
- * TOILETRIES (soap, body wash, hairbrush, combs, hair ties, shampoo, conditioner, hairspray, gel, toothbrushes, toothpaste, dental floss, cotton swabs, cotton balls, feminine products, face wash, lotion, make-up, Kleenex, toilet paper, wipes etc.)
