Northern Light School is excited to announce our Holiday Donation Drive in partnership with Homie’s Empowerment.
Homie’s Empowerment is a youth and community development organization founded in 2009. They serve over 400 families in the Bay Area and give away over $20K in food every week. This winter they’re working on their “FREEdom Store” where everything is free to Bay Area residents. They are also working with a local high school students in collecting used clothing that they will then clean, sort, and set up for a free store for families in need. Northern Light School is excited to partner with Homie’s Empowerment in meeting their goals.
We’re asking students participate by contributing the following items:

Donation bins will be brought inside at 1:30 pm every day. The drop-off deadline is Thursday, December 17th at 1:30 pm.
