Alliance Advocacy Donation Drive

Alliance Advocacy Donation Drive

As part of Literature Alive! 2016, Pleasant Ridge students are collecting donations forAlliance Advocacy, a not-for-profit group that supports children in foster care and shelters.  Alliance Advocacy provides mentoring, advocacy, and literacy support to improve outcomes for kids in the foster care system.

How can Pleasant Ridge help?
Pleasant Ridge is collecting donations that can be used for “PiGee Packs.”  These backpacks provide clothes and personal supplies to children placed in emergency foster care and shelters in the Chicagoland area. They help relieve some of the uncertainty children face when they are removed from their families, often in traumatic situations, and without the opportunity to take any personal belongings along with them.

What can we bring?
Please bring donations of NEW items to school between April 25th and May 19th.  Each grade level is collecting items for a different age-group of children.  Collection boxes will be located throughout the school. Then, visit the Alliance Advocacy table at Literature Alive! on May 19th from 5:00 - 8:00 pm to get more information.
