Helping the Homeless


In our 5th grade class we were learning about the story of Ruth .  (https://www.biblestudytools.com/bible-stories/ruth-and-naomi.html) Ruth lost her husband and two sons, and she found herself in a sad place in life.  One of her daughter in laws, Naomi stayed with her.  They moved back to their homeland and did not have a home.  She felt hopeless.


      This opened up a discussion in our class, where one of our students in 5th grade said that his mom is a teacher and she has 3 students that are homeless in her class here in queens.  We pretty much stopped a moment to realize how blessed we were here in our 5th grade.  They came up with a plan to help these three students and their families.  The last three weeks we have been raising money to get them new clothes and things that they may need.  We are asking you to help us with this goal.  


     The last three Thursday’s 5th grade has held Italian Ice and bake sales and have raised $270.  It’s really exciting to see them race to their goal of raising $600 to purchase new items that the boys need.   Some of them are wearing clothes from September.  


     Sometimes when fundraiser are held, you can’t put a face with it.   This will directly help three boys in our community.  We would like to take it to the next level as we approach Red Nose Day.  If you are interested in purchasing a red nose to be worn of May 24th, please send in your money by Friday May 18th.  Each nose costs $2.  $1 will go to purchasing a red nose. $1.00 will go to helping our fundraising goal. 50 cents in the purchase price will benefit children’s programs such as Boys & Girls Clubs of America; charity: water; Children’s Health Fund; Covenant House; Feeding America; Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance; UnidosUS; Save the Children and The Global Fund. 

    We will also accept seperate donations

Thank you for you help.
