It is hard to focus on education if you are worried about basic needs such as keeping warm. That’s where the Prince William Chamber Winter Warm-UP drive–and you–come in! With a click of the mouse and a $10 donation, you can purchase a kit complete with sweatshirt, sweatpants, hat and gloves that will be given to a local student in need. It is that easy to make a difference!
Our children are very appreciative of the warm clothing they received through the Chamber’s Winter Warm-UP! It is extremely difficult to educate students who come to school cold and hungry. We must meet those two needs before we can get their full attention in the classroom, said Bill Horan, Principal Loch Lomond Elementary School. Warm-UP kits will be distributed to Title I schools in Prince William County and the Cities of Manassas and Manassas Park. With your help, our goal is to distribute 1,000 kits of warm clothes.
