Change Matters!

Thu, 02/01/2018 - 8:05pm

Change Matters is an approved Howard County Public School System program that teaches children about homelessness in Howard County, the services Grassroots provides, and
philanthropy.  Grassroots is Howard County’s only 24-hour homeless shelter and crisis intervention center.  Your child(ren) will be asked to share with you information learned about Change Matters and
ask permission to donate small change/coins. There will be a Change Matters collection jar for each grade.

The small change collected will go directly to Grassroots to provide the essential services needed to help the children and families that are homeless here in our community. Last year, there were more than 600 homeless children attending 75 schools in Howard County.  Deep Run Elementary School is excited to help Grassroots make a difference!

If you are able to donate, please send the change in your child’s lunch bag or backpack during this campaign week through February 14, 2018.
