4th Annual Jean Drive for Local Youth
Due to the recent hurricane, Victoria is seeing remarkably high numbers of homeless students and families in our area. We currently have 875 children that are considered homeless enrolled in VISD. This total does not even reflect the children that are unidentified or teens that are too embarrassed to ask for help.
This Christmas, we need your help more than ever!
Our goal is to help students stay in school by meeting their basic needs (like food and undergarments) and providing trendy, current style clothing that help students experiencing homelessness "blend in" with their peers.
Assisting homeless students with their attire helps deter bullying, gives them hope, and the desire to overcome the obstacles they face daily. Best of all, it shows the students they are loved.
Please consider helping Kidzconnection and Restoration House Ministries Jeans for Teens meet the needs of almost 875 homeless/at risk children in Victoria.
