Immigrant and Refugee Donation Drive - March 3 to March 23 - As you may know, every quarter of the school year we have parent and teacher run interest classes that meet once a week on Fridays. This quarter, as part of our Community Awareness elective run by Winterhaven parents, we are organizing a donation drive. This drive is collecting donations for the Immigrant and Refugee Community Organization (IRCO) who serves the holistic needs of immigrants, refugees, and mainstream community members. We as students believe that it is crucial for our community to help and provide support for immigrant and refugee families. We believe that everyone has the right and obligation to take part in their community and its actions, including kids. As 6, 7, and 8 graders, we are trying to take action and help families who may not be as lucky and well off as we are. So, if you have the time and ability to donate these necessities to families in need we ask you to do so and join us in our search for equality.  If you have any questions, please email our teachers and fellow Winterhaven parents Kristin Doherty or Beth Nelson at kristinwdoherty@yahoo.com and benelsonhill@gmail.com
