Many of our clients’ children would love to be involved in after school activities but do not have the funds. While there is funding for school sponsored sports, we could use assistance with starting a “Fun Fund” to help families pay for club sports, dance and music lessons, swimming, etc. Your class could help with this fund, as well as collect gear (dance shoes, cleats, baseball gloves, instruments, etc) We could also use some more fun equipment at the shelter. Some ideas include, a basketball hoop, giant jenga, a slackline, four square balls, footballs etc. Think about the things love to play with and you have at recess! Your class could come up with the items, and then take a field trip to the shelter, take a tour and set them up!
