The Issue: Number of DFW Metroplex Children Who Are Homeless
During the 2011–2012 school year, 2,750 students in the Dallas Independent School District were considered homeless, according to a report from the Metro Dallas Homeless Alliance. Homelessness was defined as living in motels, hotels, trailer parks, or campgrounds or sharing housing with other people due to a loss of housing or economic hardship. Also, the report said another 135 students aged 17 or younger lived alone without parents. When experiencing homelessness, it can be difficult for children to find the nutritious foods they need to grow healthy bodies and minds.
The Campaign: Providing Youth with Nutritious Food
If 64 people donate $10 to this Grassroots campaign, then Arlington Life Shelter can provide 16 weeks' worth of milk, nutritional supplements, and snacks for children living in the shelter. These children typically spend their days at school and their evenings with their parents. When not at school, they might not be able to receive nutritious food, so the shelter supplements their meals to ensure they get the necessary vitamins and nutrients to stay healthy. Each additional $40 raised will fund another week’s worth of supplements and snacks.
