Prism Network has joined the Interfaith Group of Prescott Valley. At the October meeting we were shocked to hear the report by Lisa Krietenstein with the Family Resource Center with the Humboldt Unified School District (HUSD).
There are 114 students on the McKinney-Vento homeless program. Homelessness can be any temporary housing situation, like living in a car, a hotel, a homeless or domestic violence shelter, at a camp ground or even RV living. The main situation the Center sees is called 'doubled up' or a family living with another family due to a hardship.
Prism Network was able to raise just under $200.00 for new socks & underwear. We also were able to donate supplies from our Covid Support Box Program which thankfully has slowed down in the last six months.
Did you know that today's teens don't like to wear jackets? Grab a hoodie next time you are out and keep a teen warm.
Can you grab a pack of socks or underwear next time you are out?
Could your Faith Organization or Business collect a supplies to drop off?
Could you purchase a $10-$15 gift card this month so a teen can purchase undergarments?
How about writing a nice email to the Family Resource Center thanking them for all they do? Lisa.Krietenstein@humboldtunified.com
