JRMS Teens for tolerance club gives to the community
Every year, 100s of teens in California will leave Foster Care and begin a life of independence at the age of 18. Often they leave foster care with nothing.
Teens for Tolerance Club members raised funds throughout the school year, with the goal of being able to provide the items necessary to make a successful transition into independent living for a few emancipated teens in OUR community.
As part of our club’s mission to be “United in One Community,” James Rutter Middle School’s Teens for Tolerance Club more than met their goal. They were able to buy enough household goods and personal care items to overflow Ms. Ann Brown’s van. (Ms. Brown is our contact with Foster Youth Services in EGUSD.)
We loaded her van with toasters, coffee makers, blankets, silverware, drinking classes, cooking pots and pans, bake-ware, Pyrex bowls, kitchen utensils, dinner plates, cups and bowls, coffee makers, towels, all kinds of toiletries and cleaning supplies, flashlights, sewing kits and first-aid kits, Target gift cards, and A LOT MORE!
