When we think of successful students, we don’t usually imagine them sleeping on floors or crammed together sharing small, sometimes dirty, mattresses with siblings or caregivers. Unfortunately, hundreds of students right here in our community are spending their nights in conditions just like those, right now. Children can’t succeed in school without adequate sleep — and they can’t get the sleep they need without a clean, safe bed of their own.
This Back To School season, we ask you to donate $250 to give a local student in need a safe, comfortable place to rest. And if you are a new, first-time donor, Hands On Tzedakah (“HOT”) will match your gift up to $25,000 when you donate by September 17th.
