Did you know that the school districts of Elk River, Big Lake and Monticello reported 79 children homeless during the 2010–11 school year?
There’s a way that people can get involved in helping these homeless children and families. Great River Family Promise is hosting a fundraiser and informational gathering regarding a cost-effective program designed to serve homeless families.
It will be from 7:30 to 8:30 a.m. Tuesday, May 15 at the Rogers Community Room. The speaker will be a former guest of an active Family Promise Affiliate who will shed light on the benefits of the organization to a community.
The event has been made possible by donations from the Rotary clubs of Rogers, Elk River and Monticello. There is no cost to attend the event.
RSVP by Friday, May 4 by calling Kate Hansen at 763-441-6061 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
