Giving Tuesday: Week 6

Did you know that there are 680 (2008 records) "homeless" children in the Folsom-Cordova School System? Actually, now there are 783. 

What does "homeless" mean?  It means "an individual who lacks a fixed, regular and adequate residence".  These students are living in unstable places like motels, in homes without a parent or legal guardian, in homes without power or water, in RV's in parking lots, in cars, tents, the streets and more.

There is a grassroots group of people who are helping:

Project 680

They are a group of concerned citizens, who in 2008 found out that there were 680 "homeless" students in this school district.  Hence, the name Project 680.

They have had several sock and hoodie drives to give these children a little warmth in the winter...read all about them on their web site:  Project 680. 

If you feel compelled to help...you can contact them directly. 

Thanks to these wonderful folks at Project 680 for making the life of a homeless student, a little better. 

Hmmm...maybe a future project for Craft 4 Change!
