Today at our chapel, we met two teachers from Jefferson Community School in South Minneapolis. They spoke to us about their school, which is Preschool-8th grade. They told us about their students, many of whom (1 in 6) are homeless.
We learned that many of their students don't have warm clothes to wear outside in the winter. Since we LOVE playing outside, especially in the snow, this made us sad, and we wondered what we could do to help.
The Lower School is sponsoring a Winter Wear Drive to try and help out the students of Jefferson School. Here is a note from Mrs. Z with the details:
Winter Wear Wanted!
The Lower School is collecting new and gently used Winter Wear
for families experiencing homelessness.
