Service Learning Project
This year our service learning partner is Northwest Pilot Project, which helps seniors find and keep affordable housing. Our class helps by collecting items they needed such as kitchen and bath towels, hygiene supplies and socks. We also make Valentine and spring cards for the seniors. Our service helps the clients of NWPP to feel special and to know someone is thinking of them. Money we earn from our Free Dress for $1.00 day helps provide them with rent assistance, bus tickets, or other needed supplies
