Wow, what a morning! The first ever "Coeur Group Breakfast" was an amazing success. A total of $9,500 in grants were given out to schools to supply their lockers, and everyone was able to collaborate and share best-practices in running their locker programs.
Representatives from 19 local schools joined us this morning for breakfast at The Coeur d'Alene Resort to discuss ensuring students that are in need of basic necessities such as clothes and toiletries are provided for. Schools from CDA Schools District 271 and Lakeland Joint School District No. 272 attended. All attendees received a $500 on-the-spot grant for their participation. This workshop's purpose was to accompany our popular Locker Program which designs, produces, and installs custom made cabinetry and shelving in local schools. Participants communicated the need for winter clothing as the weather starts to turn. They also brought to light laundry services as an often-overlooked challenge for providing essentials to students. Many shared experiences, highlighting how much of a positive impact clean and new clothes can have on students’ learning, behavior, and self-confidence.
Thank you to everyone in our community for supporting what we do. By buying ducks for our annual Duck Derby, sharing our mission to others, going to our fundraising events, etc, you make this possible!👏
