Homeless Matters Coalition Featured in CASD Newsletter!
". . .While homelessness is often thought of as a uniquely urban issue, there are students and families in Chambersburg who struggle to maintain housing and are in desperate need of assistance.
The Homeless Matters Coalition, a partnership between the Chambersburg Area School District and local agencies and organizations, seeks to provide much needed support to students in the Chambersburg area that are facing increasingly dire circumstances. . .
“We are very thankful for the community members that have given hours of volunteer time over the years,” said Carroll. “We are also very grateful for the donations received throughout this generous community and the local businesses that support our cause.”
The coalition is seeking help from organizations and individuals that wish to provide hope to families in need. Food donations may be delivered to the CASD administration offices at 435 Stanley Avenue, Chambersburg, PA, 17201. Tax deductible monetary donations may also be sent to the administration offices and made out to: Homeless Matters, Attn: Kris Carroll."
