Did you know that Santa Clara County has among the highest rate of unsheltered homeless veterans in the country? The “All the Way Home” campaign aims to end veteran homelessness.
Mrs. Bowers second graders and Mrs. Smearden’s third graders at Holy Family School supported the “All the Way Home” program for our community outreach.
A few times during the year, they will do different collections to help these veterans get on their feet as they transition into their new homes after being homeless. In November, they collected leftover Halloween candy to make goody bags and wrote letters to the veterans in honor Veteran’s Day. Throughout the year these students will collect different home items, to donate to the veterans to get their new households started.
