Generosity makes an impact for homeless youth

Posted: January 6, 2012 - 8:54am

As the Homeless Liaison for the KPBSD, I see first-hand how challenging the holiday season can be for many of our local families. This school year the issue of youth homelessness has received increased attention and, in turn, an overwhelming amount of support. This support came in various forms including meal vouchers, food boxes, gifts, warm winter gear, and a variety of miscellaneous needs being met.

I would like to recognize those who have given so generously to our Students in Transition Program: Alaska Bikers Advocating Training and Education (ABATE) of the Kenai Peninsula, Peninsula Community Health Services, Mike Sweeny, the Soldotna Rotary Club, Dave and Debbie Michael, the Kenai Borough Employees Association and borough employees, Peninsula Grace Brethren Church, Kenai Peninsula Borough School District (District Office) staff, the College Heights Baptist Church Small Group, and the Kenai Peninsula Association of Realtors.

I am humbled by your compassion and am sincerely grateful for the partnerships we have developed. You truly are making a difference in the lives of the homeless students in our community, and I wish you all the best in the coming year.
