It’s almost back-to-school time — and once again the All Saints community is rallying in support for the Pasadena Unified School District (PUSD) Families in Transition program. Families in Transition serves homeless and transitional students and their families in PUSD by connecting them to services in the community and providing items of immediate basic needs such as food, clothing, transportation assistance, and supplies.
Students in families at risk of homelessness, homeless, or economically challenged experience many barriers that prevent them from showing up from school each day. From not having the right school supplies, to being hungry, not having clean clothes to wear, or clean bodies — anything can become a reason for not coming to school. Our support for Families in Transition helps ensure that each child in our community has access to education and is empowered to achieve and have a positive future.
The ASC Action Table will be collecting items on Sundays August 6th – September 10th — or you can bring them to the Main Office or Regas House Lobby during the week: Monday — Friday from 8:30 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
Clothing: For students from Pre-K to 12th grade.
