The Problem

We are working with faculty member at a local university to learn about civic engagement. She is teaching kids and adults how to find solutions to policy issues by working with non-profit organizations.Our group has chosen to help the Light House Shelter located in our community. The Light House Shelter provides many services for the homeless in the area. Specifically, they provide temporary housing, food and job training for homeless families. We hope to directly provide food and services to the families living at the shelter and also bring awareness to the community about the needs of the homeless living in our area.

Our Plan

At the end of the school year, our class celebrates with an end of the school year picnic. We ask each family to bring in snacks and food for the picnic. Typically, we are left with an excess of food. This year, we are asking students to bring in a donation for Light House Shelter in lieu of picnic items. We are hoping to focus on the needs of others as a way to close out the year.
