"Just remember you're not forgotten."
Today the team took a brake from delivering showers, planning for more buses, and the ever ongoing fundraising race to roll the bus around to one of our funnest stops yet - the Alta Vista School, home to some very enthusiastic grade schoolers.
They helped us set it up and break it down, got to take a tour, and ask lots - lots - of questions. They also created 71 hygiene kits for us, big plastic bags with soap, shampoo, wash cloths, razors, combs, socks, q-tips, and (cutest of all) handwritten notes for our homeless recipients:
"No matter who you are or how you live you still deserve equal rights. Even if you may not be able to have everything, you still have earned a good wash! -Kokwe, 5th Grade"
"Hello! I hope you’re having a good day! Don’t give up, and keep being positive. I also really hope you like the little kits 5th grade made. Just remember, you’re not forgotten. Your friend, Kaya, 5th Grade"
Ridiculously sweet! We’re moved, practically to tears. I’m sure even our roughest and toughest clients will be too. <3
