Ways to help families in need

 The FRC has been able to expand services to our community thanks to such meaningful partnerships with our loving community. The stories our families share could break your heart - extreme poverty, domestic violence, inadequate housing, hunger, child abuse, incarceration, crime, dangerous neighborhoods, drug use, gangs, etc. Our students - children and youth - see more than anyone should see in a lifetime, much less during childhood. We all know that education is our students' best chance to break the cycle of generational poverty, so we work collaboratively to eliminate barriers students face that can keep them from achieving their best potential in school.    

  • Volunteer at events (student community service hours are available)
  • Serve as an after-school tutor
  • Monetary donations (tax deductible)
  • Encourage your PTA, church, scout troop, sports team, ASB, or other organization to have a drive to collect:
    • Supplies for hygiene kits that contain personal necessities such as deodorant, toothbrush, toothpaste, dental floss, shampoo, conditioner, lotion, soap, nail clippers, hand sanitizer, etc.
    • New shoes, socks, and underwear in children’s and adult sizes
    • Books and school supplies
    • Food at Thanksgiving
    • Gifts at Christmas time
    • Gift cards throughout the year for groceries, gas, etc. 

All donations are tax deductible and directly benefit low income, homeless, and foster students and their families
