Rock Springs Junior High announces new program to help students in need

Views

ROCK SPRINGS – On average there are 150 children in protective custody in Sweetwater County at any given point in time. This semester Rock Springs Junior High will launch its first annual Student Service Project in an effort to provide support to these children in need.

When children are placed into protective custody, they are done so abruptly with just the clothes on their back. As a result, the Student Service Project’s mission is to create a surplus of care packages that will be given to these children at the time of their placement.

This semester RSJH students and staff will begin collecting the following new supplies: pajamas, socks, underwear, winter hats, gloves and mittens, toothpaste, toothbrushes, combs, books, etc.

All supplies will be delivered to the Department of Family Services. RSJH would like to thank Beta Sigma Phi, a local sorority, for kicking off our Student Service Project with their wonderful donation. If you are interested in helping us collect supplies, please call Norma in the front office.
