Grays Harbor Students Like Giving

September 29, 2016 | Adria Hay

On Aug. 18, after a leadership luncheon to prepare for the new school year, seventh- and eighth-graders from the Grays Harbor School delivered items to a homeless camp.

The students from the previous school year had created gallon-size toiletry kits for the residents at the camp. The students were given a short talk about life in “River City Village.” There are 1,600 homeless people in Grays Harbor County.

The average age of a person being homeless in Grays Harbor is 16–30 years old. The kits were created as a result of an “I Like Giving” challenge from the Washington Conference. There are many needs at the homeless camp, and the students hope to help “the least of these” during this school year.
