2012 Chain of Checks To Reach Out To Homeless Children
Could you imagine depriving your child from any of the activities below?
It is anticipated that there will be over 800 homeless children identified by
the Winchester, Frederick County and
Loudoun County school systems this school year.
‘Homeless’ can be defined as living in a
crowded motel room, sleeping on a sofa at a relative
or friend’s house, or living in a car or a tent.
For these children, kindergarten through high school,
there is no money for school pictures, year books
or even field trips.
They can’t bring in cupcakes for the class on
their birthday, or purchase Valentine’s Day cards.
Trying out for a sports team or participating in a school activity …
it takes precious dollars that their families don’t have.
The 2012 WINC-FM Chain of Checks,
working through the Winchester and Frederick County Schools
and Mobile Hope in Loudoun County,
wants to make this school year a
memorable one for these 800 plus kids.
WINC-FM is calling it the “Me Too” campaign.
On December 13th and 14th, WINC-FM had our first
Chain of Checks Radio-thon
from 5 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Volunteer operators set up in the WINC-FM studio
to take pledges over the phone.
Donations can be received online up through December 31st.
Or please make checks payable and mail to:
Chain of Checks
PO Box 3300
Winchester, Virginia 22604
A caring community can magically turn two days of sharing,
into a school year of “me too” memories for 800 homeless kids.
Thank you for all your support!!!!
